what a bunch of sheep in Iowa.


Always thought it was strange that Iowa was a battleground state. I guess it's starting to be more like the other mid west states as the campaign goes on. It will probably go red in November.

Iowa has been more of a battleground state than MI, WI, and certainly MN in the last several cycles, going back to '96 or '92 at least.



Why did you not poll on the retention election of Iowa Supreme Court Justice David Wiggins? The judicial retention election was a major news story in 2010, when 3 IA Supreme Court Justices were successfully targeted for removal. So it is hard to see how this year's retention election isn't worthy of polling. Especially since you took the time to poll on how much people like Davenport.

You regularly solicit input on these state polls but I wonder: do you read the suggestions and give them consideration?

Dustin Ingalls

We take a few suggestions a week, but we can't take everything. Suggestions also have to be in by Thursday morning every week.

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?"
