Poll shows Obama pulling only 79% of black vote with 5% undecided. 14% of "other" race also undecided. If black vote for Obama goes up to 90% and he picks up 30% white undecided, 35% other undecided and 85% black undecided he's just over 50%.

Seems more than plausible.


As I said earlier, it is very interesting that the clowns who are opposed to SB-5 will turn around and vote for Cain. This is the main reason I am against referendums. If you make your bed by voting for Kasich or Cain, you have to lie on it. You have to be held accountable for your own actions.

The problem I see in comparisons between Obama and any GOP candidate is that there is no predictive value in those comparisons until one GOP candidate is nominated and the conservative supporters then decide whether to unite and back that candidate or not. Until then, doing head to heads have no value whatsoever.


Sounds more like a tie than likely to lose scene. Meaning that it can go either way. Do polling and stop injecting your opinions please.

I think we should outlaw white men from voting. Imagine how much better the election results would be without white men included. And yes, I'm a white man myself... but I'll take one for the team.


When an incumbent is having unfavorability of more than 50% or when they are tied up with a challenger or even close to challenger within one or two points ahead, the incumbent will loose big time. Time and time,we have seen that undecided groups goes to the challenger and Ohio is part of industrial belt along with Pennsylvania to switch hands. If obama looses ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida, I don't see how he can get relected

If he only loses those three out of the states he won in 2008, he'll still get easily re-elected.


Lets ban white men from voting? Typically Democratic belief. Sorry they don't believe in socialism and for that reason vote Republican.

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?"
