Was the race for governor polled? If so, when will the results between Perdue and McCrory be released?

Dustin Ingalls

Governor numbers tomorrow (Friday).

I appreciate PPP's polling on marriage, but I wonder how reliable these results are, given that the marriage amendment vote will take place in May, on the day of the primary election.

Dustin Ingalls

The marriage results were among people who said they'd probably vote in the primary in May, just as in previous months.

Mike P.

Patrick Egan of NYU has found that level of opposition to marriage amendments found in polls are far more likely to end up being correct than the level of support found in polls. The level of opposition in the polls has been pretty stable: 34, 35, 31, 34. Plus, three of the four polls -including the January poll- have found pluralities of Democrats in favor of the measure. It is hard to see how the measure can be defeated without strong (60%+) Democratic opposition. That will almost certainly not happen; on the contrary, Democrats might vote in favor of the measure.

PPP POLLS BY YEAR: 2006-2014

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?"
