Obama 2012

It's been pretty awesome how the debacle that has been the GOP nomination battle has made Democrats more enthusiastic about voting for President Obama (and against the terrible GOP candidates) while simultaneously dampening enthusiasm among Republican voters.

I just love watching their BS backfire on them. It's beautiful.

Josh Berezin

How well oes poll respondents' answer to the enthusiasm question correspond with election day turnout?


That's where a powerful ground game, like the one Obama is building comes into play

Julie Nutt

I am a democrat and if someone asked if I was enthused about voting ...I would say no...If they asked me Why? I would say I don't have anyone to vote for as President. Obama is a Republican and Mitt's a Republican. So I will vote for a third party candidate knowing they probably won't win. My greater interest are in my state elections where I want to see the Governor recalled and new Democrats elected to the legislature. I am excited about seeing more democrats elected to the federal congress. I WILL vote. I can't in good conscience vote for Obama..What a betrayer..You say will then you'll get Mitt elected. I say , what's the difference and if it is worse maybe more American's will start waking up and it will set a fire under their behind and motivate them to get involved in politics...Now that would excite me...Maybe it has to get worse before it gets better...I live out here in the middle of middle America and to bring up politics to the "regular guy or gal" you would think I was talking about being an atheist at a Born-Again baptism..And they are so horribly ignorant of what is going on. They watch Fox News and believe it like it's the Bible of News... They are pitifully ignorant of politics and hate you or call you a liar if you bring anything up. Where are these polls being taken and who is participating in them..I feel right at home reading my progressive friends articles and listening to their shows...But we aren't enough to elect the right people...The general public I feel still has to wake up. They have to feel empowered..They have to feel there vote means something..They have to get involved..People here where I live aren't doing none of this..We don't even have Democrats to run against the republicans..I really think there has to be a movement of Mass Information (the real stuff not hate, fear and fantasy) spewed upon the American public...But our media outlets aren't doing their jobs...I truly believe if people really knew how and by whom they were getting screw that things would change...My conundrum is how do I get them to even listen or pay attention as to why they have to work three minimum wage jobs with no benefits and no health insurance...

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?"
