Obama 2012

I don't see why Obama is slipping really, he's performing better than ever as far as I'm concerned. But perhaps the polls will catch up to that as more people hear about his absolutely great proposals for the economy. Obama is clearly on the side of the American people right now. The Republicans are standing in the way of needed tax increases on millionaires and on millions of new American jobs. The Republicans are obviously the problem.

I am a lifelong Bay Stater, and while I think you are correct in your assertion that the GOP has little chance of actually carrying the state, I do believe that Obama's awful poll numbers will drag down fellow down-ballot democrats in MA and elsewhere. This already happened last fall, last night in a special election, and I believe it will continue.

The end of the Kennedy dynasty has ushered in a new era in Massachusetts politics, and democrats can no longer take the state for granted.

Nobama 2012

Good to see Obama slipping. He has done nothing to help this country. Even Bill Clinton said raising taxes during a bad economy is not smart. But Obama doesn't care. He could care less about this country. All he cares about is "kissing up" to the liberal's, and not what is in the best interest of our beautiful country!


The Democrats are in big trouble in Massachusetts!!! Did anyone see that special election last night? A conservative Republican picked up a Democratic seat in the state house!!! A major pickup for the Republican Party of Massachusetts! And he won by more than 8 points, so it was not even close!


Obama 2012,

Everytime, I see your post, I am planning to tell people about Obama ! Did you check the stock market today and yesterday? Just 500 points down ! Did you check the unemployment rate today? It is 9.2%(15.5% with African Americans ! Did you check the latest connection of white house on Solyndra? Did you check the latest rumbling of Clinton on Obama? Did you check the downgrade of all the banks by moody's? Did you check the poll, where more people are blaming obama for economy? Did you check the housing numbers? It should be great fun to be in Organizing for America and ask people to give 4 more years !


Republicans in Massachusetts have been underwater for so long, it's not surprising they're flailing, grabbing at any faint ray of light they can see, and hallucinating about having a political future in the state. The peak realistic Republican dream for Massachusetts these days is to hold Democrats to less than a supermajority in at least one house.

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?"
