Why not have a question...Do you believe theres a god before you go off on whether its doing good or not? Seems like its a one sided survey.

Its all very well that God is still getting a pass from the public with regard to natural disasters. But the question that matters to the chattering classes in DC is, are his approval ratings up or down?


Oh my. The God poll questions are just hilarious.I would suggest a question for next time along the lines of Do you think Republicans in the House of Representatives accomplished more legislatively than the Democrats in the previous Congress?(The answer is, of course, the 2009-2011 Congress was one of the most productive ones in history, whereas the 2011-2013 Congress is shaping up to be one of the least.)

The Interesting Times

I see you mentioned the Big Bang in your writeup. Since you evidently didnt ask a question to determine which respondents were creationists, many of them may not necessarily have had the Big Bang in mind when answering regarding their approval of Gods creation of the universe (especially since you specifically used the term creating).


IMHO using he in place of it would have been far preferable here. While it may not be as inclusive, it fits in with standard practice in English as well as most religious dogma. Of probably even runs less risk of causing offense. And its less distracting. ;)


Hey! Youre displaying an obvious and perturbing bias. You must be afraid of what you would see because you refused to release the results of testing Ron Paul against God!

Why not have a question...Do you believe theres a god before you go off on whether its doing good or not? Seems like its a one sided survey.The questions included if God exists so as not to presume there is one.

Im going to give PPP the benefit of a doubt here and assume that this was intended for publication on April 1, only there was a glitch in the content management system.


You didnt even test God against Obama!

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?"
