Going from a +8 D advantage in 2008 to a +10 D advantage in 2011 can easily be two factors - random sample variance, and previously-R union members belatedly realizing just how much their now-former party hates them.

Dustin Ingalls

+10 is not much different than 2008s +8 (according to exit polls), and its conceivable Democrats are more excited to vote now than then because of Kasich and company.


Given Browns track record (hes a very workers rights pro-labor Senator), he probably picked up quite a bit of support due to the collective bargaining tussle, so this result makes sense.


These PPP numbers are simply not credible. The partisan ID in this sample is D45, R35. History suggests there is no way the electorate in Ohio is currently D+10 or will be so in Nov. 2012 . The Quinnipiac survey taken around the same time tilts about 10 points more favorable to the GOP. I will give PPP some points for transparency; at least the partisan breakdown is published for those who bother to look past the top line.


Is anyone with a 39% approval rating really in good shape, I wonder.The best thing he has going for him, probably, is Kasichs current unpopularity.

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?"
