Jay, I doubt you will remember me but I certainly remember you, when your father was in the law firm with John Howell at Hillsboro, and when you and I had a short talk one afternoon on your way into his office from school.
He was so proud of you.

While I normally vote for a Republican I voted for you because I knew your father and the kind of guy he was.
Back then your father and John Howell had me do a lot of appraisal work for them, especially when I-55 went through Jefferson County.

Over all, I think you have done an excellent job as governor and I hope you get re-elected but I am afraid it may be difficult with the direction Obama and his policies are going.

Earl Blackwell tried to get me to run for representative from Jeff County, but I decided I liked real estate better and right now, I am glad I am not in the election cycle for any election.

While I know it is difficult to separate yourself from Obama and his policies, and so far you have done very well of doing this, I hope you can find some way to denounce his policies without hurting yourself.

I just wanted to let you know there are many of us out here that support you but we are so afraid Obama will take you down with himself, or at least make it more difficult to get elected.

Here in Nixa, I understand there are about 400 homes, that have either been foreclosed on, or is getting close. Some of the Realtors tell me over 40% of the homes or under water for value and it is getting worse.

The value of my own home has dropped over 40% and still dropping with a value of about what I paid for it 16 years ago.

On the positive side for you, I do think you will carry Christian County for Governor, although Christian County is mostly Republican.

I know much of this is way beyond your control and you have done an excellent job of pulling people from both parties.
I am sure you know more about getting elected than I do but wanted you to know there is much support for you.

I do work for almost 100 of the Table Rock Lake Resorts. They had a bad year last year, due to flooding, and this year is starting off slower than last year.

I do hope your staff will forward this on to you.
I wish you a very good upcoming election.

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?"
