The Interesting Times

I voted for Florida. My home state, plus it's an important state for the Republican Presidential primary--could Perry beat Romney here?

Maine would also be an interesting race to poll. The last time Maine was polled, Sarah Palin was leading. This was also true of Washington.

Pennsylvania would be interesting too. Could Perry win here, or is he a South-only candidate? The same goes for New Hampshire, though they seem to get polled all the time, so they're perhaps not as urgently in need of a poll.

Minnesota hasn't been polled since Pawlenty was in the race and winning that state. Is Bachmann now in a position to win her home state? Or has Romney picked up the Pawlenty voters? Or maybe everyone is flocking to Perry...

California and Connecticut are only marginally interesting. They both just create false hopes for the Republicans, who are soundly defeated in every election there regardless. And Romney is likely to defeat Perry in all of these states unless his campaign absolutely implodes.



Mark Rosenthal

Minnesota and Florida.

Kyle Cameron

How on earth did Connecticut just surge like that?

Josh Amato


Bazinga !

This time: New Hampshire

Next time please poll either Georgia or Arizona.

Both states will be important in the GOP primaries and they are also states that could be close next year. Besides, the last time they were polled was about half a year ago.

I vote for Minnesota. TPaw is out of the senate race, but the race in CD8 pits an 80's congressman, the woman who last challenged Bachmann and a city council member from the biggest city in the district against a heavily targeted tea party freshman. All of Minnesota is watching that.


Seems like Connecticut has some one cheating for it.


May be you should take a national poll between Palin and Obama. One poll which I believe is an outlier shows Obama ahead of Palin by only five points.


I was hoping for California, but so far it looks like that's not to be this week. Eh, I really doubt either Obama or DiFi is in any sort of real trouble there.

If the leaders remain the same, I look forward to seeing the new CT-Sen numbers. Chris Murphy really looks like the one to beat, but it's still interesting to see if you confirm Quinnipiac's GOP primary results showing Chris Shays losing to Linda McMahon.

And I really am eager to see how Rick Perry being "Fed Up!" with Social Security is playing in Florida.

Bazinga !

Yeah, throw out Connecticut, it had a huge jump in votes over a short period of time.

Besides, it was recently polled by Quinnipiac.


I voted for Florida, and Florida and Connecticut would be my top two because they are the only two whose Senate races seem settled down for the long haul.

Dustin Ingalls

"May be you should take a national poll between Palin and Obama."

We've polled her against him every month nationally until last month, and she's usually down double digits.

Grim Ego

I say Minnesota and New Hampshire. I'd love to see if Bachmann has any traction there. If not, she's toast. And I'd like to see if Romney is still dominating in New Hampshire, and if Bachmann is failing there too. BUT, if you poll NH, you should include Gary Johnson, who just got invited to Thursday's debate. He's been campaigning a TON in NH, and I'd love to see if he is making any progress between that and finally getting some screen time with everyone else.

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
