Ohio- Want to see polling on SB5, also Kasich popularity and Brown.Missouri- McCakill v. Akin, Steelman, Wagner. Also governor.Maine- Snowe primary, also LePage popularity.


Florida!ask:Poll your usual 2012ers and then ask the extra question: If the GOP candidates were only: Huckabee and Romney, who would you vote for?

The Interesting Times

It seems like Connecticut has lost more elections than Ralph Nader by now, but the race for Liebermans seat is still one of the more interesting ones.Id really like to see polls in some of the states that havent been polled for the 2012 Republican Presidential primary yet, especially New York, Mississippi, Oregon, Maryland, Oklahoma, and Idaho. Mississippi would be especially interesting now that PPP has added Barbour to the list of candidates theyll be polling.


Mississippi: Put this one on again. You have the governors race, the Wicker race, Haley Barbour, and Barack Obama. Obama probably isnt doing that bad here with the high African American population. MS is one of the last states with a Democratic legislature so see if people are willing to reelect them again this year.Georgia: Could be competitive with Sarah Palin on the ballot. Im sure theres a lot of state issues you could ask there.Montana; You have the governors race, the Senate race, and the House race (where you can poll Schweitzer and Daines)Hawaii: Theres renewed speculation, with Daniel Inouye upset about the way Akaka is fundraising that Akaka might retire. Try the LG against Lingle and Akaka against Lingle. Utah: Was that bizarre poll showing Hatch tied with Chaffetz among primary voters (the more moderate) really true? If Matheson is redistricted out, does he stand a chance statewide?


Missouri Ideas:MO-Sen (McCaskill vs. Lipari, McCaskill vs. Martin, McCaskill vs. Wagner, McCaskill vs. Steelman) 2012 Presidential Elections2012 MO-Gov raceCollective BargainingSome bonus optional polls to consider:Cardinals vs. Royals supportShould Albert Pujols stay a Cardinal?


Indiana. Governor, Senator (both primaries and the general), President. Also a similar situation with unions in Wisconsin.


Montana - Tester/Rehberg could be the difference between democrats or republicans running the senate. Just saw a 47-44 poll in favor of Rehberg. Plus Schweitzer favorability.Massachussets - Top candidates against Brown for same reason as Montana.Missouri - McCaskill for same reasons. Plus Obama vs. GOP candidates would be interesting.Nevada - cant remember if this was polled recently, but Ensign/Heller against democrats would be interesting. I think in a presidential year the dems could beat Heller and will probably need to. Plus Obama presidential matchups.


Montana:Tester v. RehbergOhioMissouri


Please do Missouri so many people have taken their name out of the running for the senate race that you can focus only on Wagner, Martin, and Steelman as opponents in the horse race against McCaskill. In addition, there is the gov race, and the pres race and you can see where Missouri stands on collective bargaining. Please poll them.


Ohio and New Hampshire.


I have two suggestions, both of them in places not getting enough attention.The first one is 2012 Hawaii Senate race, with Lingle v. Akaka and Lingle v. another potential Democratic candidate should Akaka retire.The second is the 2012 Indiana Senate race. First, the GOP primary between Lugar and Richard Mourdock, and second, the general election between Lugar and possible Democratic candidates (like Donnelly or Ellsworth) and Mourdock and possible Democratic candidates.


Do MO, IN, or CT

Andrew Carden

New Hampshire, please. And, poll Rudy Giuliani in the GOP primary.


Missouri and Florida

Mad Joy

I know that Connecticut keeps losing, but Id still really like to see some polling with all the possibilities.


Deleware– Carper/Im Not A Witch ODonnell and Carper/Pense.


AZ-Sen: with GiffordsVA-Sen: GOP Primary, and each against Kaine/PerrielloMA-Sen: against Elizabeth Warren


Id kind of like Mississippi to be an option. There was a weird Gallup poll showing Obama with a positive approval rating there, higher than in Pennsylvania or Maine. That seems crazy to me, but Id like to check it.


Maine: LePage approval rating & Snowe primary


Missouri and Washington.


Washington and Missouri.


Requesting Delaware again. Markell vs. Bonini, Copeland, and Kovach.And Vermont. Bernie vs. Tom Salmon.Maine would be good too. LePage seems to be putting his foot in his mouth on a weekly basis; would be interested to see his approvals. Also, Snowe has an actual primary challenger, while the Democrats have at least one potential candidate waiting in the wings (Rosa Scarelli). She could be tested in the general, along with someone like Mike Michaud.


LA an NY please.


NEW HAMPSHIRE!!!Obama vs. RomneyRepublican primary


New Hampshire


Please do Mississippi and Oregon.

North Dakota! Senate race and maybe a longshot flip if the GOP chooses a more extreme nominee.


Georgia: Could be competitive with Sarah Palin on the ballot. Im sure theres a lot of state issues you could ask there.Montana; You have the governors race, the Senate race, and the House race (where you can poll Schweitzer and Daines)

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?"
