Haha, good stuff, Anonymous.You can get strident partisans to say just about anything, and youll always get 10% of people to choose even the most ridiculous answer choice (see our is Obama the anti-Christ? polls in 2009). For instance, a ton of Republicans, and even a good chunk of the overall public in some states, actually said the BP oil spill made them MORE likely to support oil drilling off their state. Theyre just reiterating their support for drilling in general, as Republicans are here for their failed candidate who continues to hang on. Which reminds me, we havent polled on Joe Miller since the election....


(Anonymous again!)Im wondering if I could make a few poll suggestions:- If you do poll MN again, ask two types of questions - one with the who was the rightful winner of the election, another with the Did ACORN help Dayton steal the election? Im curious as to if the reason behind the surprising difference was related to the leading nature of the question as well as paranoia over acorn.- Ask the Did Obama legitimately win 2008? question again in your next national poll; Im wondering if his numbers might be higher this time, as the recent Republican landslide victory proves that there was no fraud.


(same anonymous as previous)Okay, I found your ACORN polls in question:- 26% of Americans thought that ACORN stole 2008 for Obama- 20% of Americans thought that ACORN would steal 2010 for the Democrats, despite not existing anymore.In sum, it appears that Daytons gubernatorial win in Minnesota by 0.5% was MORE convincing to the public than Obamas 2008 landslide victory...


Isnt 21% (order of magnitude) around the same amount of people as those who thought Obama stole the 2008 election through Acorn/etc?

Daddy Love

So theres been an election and a recount and only 68% of the state thinks the winner won? Whats wrong with this picture?

PPP POLLS BY YEAR: 2006-2017

We came to PPP after a public poll in the San Jose Mayoral race showed our opponent ahead by 8 points. They found our candidate (Sam Liccardo) ahead by 3 points and that allowed us to be able to push back with the press against the perception that our opponent was now a strong favorite in the race. Sam ended up winning by 2 points and is now the next Mayor of San Jose. PPP worked very fast and had a very accurate read on the electorate when we needed them

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
