Did you poll the favorability of Lindsey Vonn in Colorado as I've suggested?

Todd Dugdale

If every Republican in the State "rallied" to Romney after the RNC, it would only add 6.3% to Romney's side of the margin (.35 x .18).

If every undecided Independent went for Romney, it would add 3.6% to the general election margin in Romney's favour (.30 x .12).

This, of course, assumes that Romney's "favourables" don't go down further once the Republican "brand" is tied to him post-Convention.

There aren't enough undecided voters for Romney to get above water on his favourables nor his general election margin.


Why do most pollsters use Registered Voters rather than the more accurate group of Likely Voters? Everyone knows that Democrats register more voters, but Republicans get better turnout rates. Seems like taking the easy route and not screening more thoroughly introduces inaccuracies into your polls. Look at the national polls: it's as if pollsters using likely voters are seeing a much different (and closer) race than those using registered voters.


When can we see a Georgia poll? I'd like to see if Obama has a chance of winning it in 2012. He lost by only 5% in 2008.

Obama 2012

Agreed with Bob - Georgia seems like a red 2008 state that Obama has a shot to pick up (if he wins by a healthy margin...)

I'd sure like to poll Lindsey Vonn


Romney just finished the primary and people that regard themselves independant is at record highs. Lets wait and see how things are going to be going forward. It is pretty simple choice more government with Obama less (hopefully with Romney.

Lets look at recent events.
1) The war on woman (failed)
2) Romneys dog ( are u serious)
3) The Ryan Plan (its a lot to ask the government to balance the budget in 30yrs and by the way congress hasnt passed a budget since Obama Started)
4) Immigration Arizona law upheld. Yet another flop for ths constitional professor.
5) Educational Loans (please refer to NO WE CANT) Jon Stossel. The government like fanie and freddie has greated a bubble in education. 600 Universities host climbing walls in their rec centers. How about selling those and reduce tuition.

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?"
