This is a B.S. poll, just another attempt to cast republican candidates in an anemic light while the left struggles to find a way to jack up the presidents very precarious approval ratingGlad to see other people recognize these guys for what they are: Shills for the likes of DailyKOS, SEIU and the Dem party. They used to publish some credible polls, but now their entire game is proganda pushing and messaging.Notice how Dems are always ahead in their polls and Reps like Palin always lose to the likes of Charley Sheen, Lady Gaga, and Caligula. What a joke these guys at PPP have become.


Have you ever polled Rick Perry for president? Im curious where hed land.

This is the same wording we use for all of our presidential matchups. They were asked back-to-back with the questions bitting Obama against the others.


@2:10pmthe fallacy in your argument is that youre equating Lady Gaga with Dennis Kucinich when in fact its Trump and Palin that are seen by and large as the joke candidates.


Please I would vote for Kucinich over anyone!


Whenever you see a poll taken on a proposition with virtually no chance of occurring in the real world--i.e., In-a-head-to-head matchup for the presidency, who would you vote for: Lady Gaga or Michelle Bachman--and the former trounces the latter you can be pretty sure of two things: 1) The poll would have never seen the light of day if the results were reversed); and 2) when the framing of the question Who would you vote for next year? differs from almost every poll that asks if the election were held today... . you can surmise its asked knowing that, in reality, people really dont know how they will feel in the future even when they know the circumstances. For instance, in January of 2010, George Bushs approval rating was at 35%. Recently in a poll which polled 17% more democrats than republicans he had broken through 50%. Does anyone really believe, if the question were asked, Fifteen months from now are you likely to change your opinion of the job George Bush did to the point that you will rate him higher than Obama? that 15% would have answered yes?This is a B.S. poll, just another attempt to cast republican candidates in an anemic light while the left struggles to find a way to jack up the presidents very precarious approval rating (the Usama bump in two weeks rather than its anticipated nine by POLLSTERS) of 46% with no tangible signs to Americans at gas pumps and on checkout lanes (or who are watching the value of their homes plummet).Keep these polls coming. The left seems emboldened and inspired by what is little more than statistical porn.


You should poll NV-02 special - Ds -Kate Marshall and Jill DerbyRs - Sharron Angle, Mark Amodei, Kirk Lippold, Greg Brower


So, which state will you poll this weekend ?

Too bad my dream of Palin as the GOP nominee now looks like it will not materialize. The odds of Palin running seem extremely thin now... and even if she did I dont think shed have much chance of winning the nomination at this point.If it cant be Palin I hope it ends up being one of the other loons... someone boring like Pawlenty or Romney wouldnt be too much fun (and if the economy is doing poorly enough they may even win ~ which would be a real bummer.)

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
