Here's PPP's plan over the next few days:
-We'll release numbers on the Washington caucus tonight, likely between 1 and 1:30 AM eastern.
-We'll release a first look at all the primary races in North Carolina tomorrow morning.
For this weekend we're going to poll the GOP race in 3 states: Georgia, Ohio, and Tennessee. Those polls will be in the field Saturday and Sunday and we'll release them on Sunday night.
We obviously have a pretty standard set of questions we've been asking on these GOP primary polls but if there's anything specific you'd like us to ask this weekend just send those ideas along.
In Maine the Senate field isn't sorted out and we can't test every scenario under the sun so let me pose this question: who are the 4 Democrats and 3 Republicans, who are plausible candidates, that you would most like to see us test? Testing 12 different match ups is still a lot but there's so much interest right now that we're ok with that.
In terms of testing the primary I think on the Democratic side we'll do a Baldacci/Michaud/Pingree question, and then for both the Democrats and Republicans we'll do a 'laundry list' style primary question looking at 9 different names on each side. That's obviously not how the field will unfold but it will give an early idea of who the party bases want to run.
I'm just going to say preemptively that we're not going to be able to get into the House races in Maine. We'll do the Presidential race, gay marriage...what else would you like us to ask about in Maine? Thanks for the suggestions...
