Ford was suggested by blog readers as a look-back baseline. Gore and McGraw arent going to run either, but we threw even fantasy candidates at Corker to see what would stick. And only Bredesen did.

I certainly hope the Democrats can get this guy to run. Tennessee would be an awesome pick-up...


Ford lives in new york. Why would you poll him against anyone in Tennessee. Did you match bloomberg up against corker as well. We want him as our mayor in new york - hes smart, middle of the road and understands the importance of government living within its means

All the question wording is in the link at the bottom of the post, as always. We asked a simple favorability for Bredesen, as for the other candidates.


I would be interested in how the questions ascertaining Bredesons popularity were worded. Most probably rate him as a good Governor, but how would he rate as a potential Senator, addressing a completely different set of issues? Any Senate race will contain an element of Obama policy approval/disapproval in it. Would Phiil be able to distance himself far enough away from BHO to negate the electorates poor opinion?

Presidential results Thursday.


Please tell me you guys did a Presidential match up.


Isnt Corker a moderate conservative? And as such, subject to being teapartied out of the nomnation?

Good grief. This is a Daily KOS poll for goodness sakes. I guess I see the value in allowing Liberals to sing kumbaya and drink the Kool Aid together. But outside of the HuffPost/Daily KOS crowd, most reasonable people would prefer to see confirmation from an independent poll before jumping to conclusions.

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?"
