Can we please see a Georgia poll soon? I'd like to see if Obama has a chance at winning the state. No one else has polled it recently.


Completely at odds with Quinnipiac and Rasmussen polls. The partisan composition makes a difference.


NC is a lost cause for Obama this time around, and I think they know it, thats why theyre cutting back on the DNC convention here...I almost expect some demonstrations in Charlotte during the convention. Cant speak to Colo but I think the race is closer than you show, but thats just a hunch...we shall see I guess:}


What percentage were the Dems over sampled in this poll?

Christus Regeln

Good thing most of the Hispanics in Colorado are illegal and will not be voting.


Yet another absolutely ridiculous poll by PPP. Your Democratic bias is truly astonishing


Gee, where is the breakdown on the people polled? D,R,I? Otherwise this poll is useless. Enthusiasm? Likely or Registered Voter sample? Useless, indeed.


Why bother releasing this poll if you don't reveal the +(pick a number) Democrat sample size in your story?

Bob Davis

Well, I guess it's all over, right? PPP couldn't possibly be biased with their polling methodology, could they? :)

Ray Lopez

I am an hispanic in Colorado. I have never been polled in my life. Where the hell are you taking these polls? at Home Depot? Any hispanic who is going to vote for Obama is either not paying attention or has been in a coma for the last 4 years.


Looks like some right-wing nut-blogger linked the story and the kooks came out!


I thought these comments were moderated. How then did the explicity racist comment by Christus Regeln pass through?

All of you right wingers screaming bias: On what facts to you base your claims? PPP has a great track record! On other hand most of you love to quote Rasmussen polls despite how badly biased towards Republicans they were in the 2010 Senate races.

Here's a clue, TexasMom: Above the comments is a sentence, "Full results here". The word "here" is a hyperlink. It takes you to the full results, which is surprising, I know.

Ray Lopez - it always amuses me when people say things like that... "I'm a ____ and I like this or that ... so I'm sure all the rest of us must like this or that."

That would be like me saying "I'm a white male and I support Obama... where are all of these white males who support Romney?!?"

You're just one person. You don't represent an entire demographic.

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?"
