Did you also poll gay marriage in Arizona, Montana and Florida ?

If yes, when do you plan releasing it ?


not buying ANY of this crap.....Dems got their clocked cleaned in Pennsy a month ago and now all of a sudden Pennsy is turning solid blue?

I'm betting they favored the Southeastern part of the state with their sampling.

Rick, this is the same poll that had Obama and Romney tied.


Tom Corbett looks as if he will be no help for the Republican nominees for President, US Senate, or House seats.

Some Republican Governors in arguable swing states (Arizona, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin) stand to hurt the GOP chances of winning the Senate, defeating President Obama, or even holding onto the House.

I see the 2012 general election looking more like that of 1948 except that the President won't be traveling by train.

Only the tea party crazies voted in the last election that's why R's had gains. Hopefully, some more rational people will vote next November. Frodo-- the D's still hold a big registration lead in PA, FYI.


We Tea Party "crazies" consist of people who work, are retired, or are looking for work. At our monthly meetings, we listen to experts on the Constitution, candidates from both parties, specialists in the use of social media. You know, that 'crazy' kind of stuff.

Our group also puts on a sedate, sidewalk rally at the largest mall in the country, every Saturday for the past two and a half years. The thousands who see us are comprised of a cross section of all income groups. And those passersby express their support for us and our signs at the rate of about twenty to one, a ratio that's grown from six or eight to one when we began.

For the past six or eight months, we're also getting positive gestures from minorities, every week. Not enough to make a big deal about, yet it's interesting. In addition, I met recently with a newly formed Tea Party in a working class neighborhood of Philadelphia. Their leader later advised me that most of their members are Democrats.


The General Wayne Tea Party


The Tea Party has peaked. People are getting wise to the reality that the Tea Party is the cats' paw for people who believe that America needs even more severe economic inequality and economic insecurity. These fellows want government by lobbyist, which is 100% alien to the ideas within the Federalist Papers. We liberals are catching on.

With little of the Tea Party agenda being enacted, America has an economic recovery based on something other than war and destructive speculation.


pbrower2a: The Tea Party does not believe that America needs economic inequality. The Tea Party believes in economic freedom, which DOES correspond to the ideas within the Federalist Papers, and will result in more people working, and more people climbing the economic ladder to a wealthier position.

As you say, little of the Tea Party agenda has been enacted to-date. The Progressive agenda is causing the current long-term lethargic economy, along with the crony capitalism being practiced by the President, such as with the Solyndra scandal. The Progressive agenda is actually regressive, causing America to have more unemployment, gargantuan debt, higher taxes, fewer energy sources and lower supplies, and generally causing more and more people to live worse than their parents for the first time in American history.

pbrower2a - The Tea Party agenda will raise everyone economically using freedom and liberty as tools, while the Progressive agenda will keep the bottom half down and lower the top half to the level of the bottom half using government force and oppression as tools.

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?"
