I am surprised that the Detroit Tigers do not figure in in Nebraska. Sure, Detroit is a long way from Nebraska, but for years the owner of the Tigers (John Fetzer) also owned TV stations in Lincoln and Omaha and broadcast Tigers' games on those channels and their satellites. That was before the Kansas City Royals got a broadcast presence.


First time visiting the site, very interesting! I thought it worth mentioning that Tom Osborne's popularity probably has little or nothing to do with his election loss, but rather his legendary on the football field when he was Nebraska's head coach. :) Also, how are those poll questions posed regarding popularity on different people?

pbrower2a: We didn't ask about the Tigers, but they could've been among the 28% plurality that said they favor another team or are not baseball fans.

Josh: The full results are in the link at the bottom of the post, as always.


Not surprised. Husker football is the state religion of Nebraska. Everyone I've ever met from there is a Husker fan, even people who otherwise don't care about sports. Walk into a gas station at the west end of the state, 300 miles from Lincoln, they sell more Huskers trinkets than you can shake a stick at.

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?"
