Question 3 on your survey is false. The candidates for governor are Pat McCrory, Walter Dalton and Libertarian Barbara Howe. Please correct future surveys.

" Q3. The candidates for Governor are Democrat Walter Dalton and Republican Pat McCrory."

No, they are Democrat Walter Dalton, Libertarian Barbara Howe and Republican Pat McCrory.

Was your poll slanted on purpose or out of ignorance?

Shane Killian

"The candidates for Governor are Democrat Walter Dalton and Republican Pat McCrory."

This statement on the poll is incorrect. There is a third candidate, Barbara Howe. If you truly want "highly accurate polling on key political races across the country," you need to make sure you don't mislead people as to whom the candidates are.

Beverly Wilcox

Ditto the above comments. Hard to believe that this was accidental. You will not get honest answers if you refuse to ask honest questions


Libertarian candidates rarely have sufficient impact on anything to be worth mentioning. If this was a two-point race, then that might make up the margin. Until then, people would just ask "What? Who Howe?"

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?"
