What about Jon Huntsman clobbering Obama in Utah? http://publicpolicypolling.blogspot.com/2011/07/breaking-news-obama-will-not-win-utah.htmlYour poll from a week ago...


So what you actually mean is that you have found a republican who leads in his home state against Obama but you dont care for him right? You didnt even include the results of Paul vs Obama in New Jersey. is that because you didnt like the results?


This reads mostly as an indicator of the increased polarization of the states. Home-field advantage might still exist, but if it does, its no longer a big enough effect to overcome the natural leanings of a state. If there was a serious contender from Missouri or Virginia, that might yield some enlightening data on the subject, but, alas, none has emerged.

Whoops, yeah, Huntsman does beat Obama. Correction forthcoming.You didnt even include the results of Paul vs Obama in New Jersey. is that because you didnt like the results?We didnt poll Paul against Obama anywhere but his home state and a couple times nationally.

PPP POLLS BY YEAR: 2006-2015

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?"
