Et tu, PPP? I guess it's all over now.

Goodbye, cruel world.

How soon before the Democratic circular firing squads start to assemble?


""Obama is up 60/38 with voters under 65, but he's losing every other age group.""

I'm guessing this is a typo...


At the very least, I hope these results shut up the people that keep saying you skew the polls to Obama.

You have an error in the Iowa results. According to the supporting data, Obama leads 60/38 in the 18-29 group. In the article on this page, you say he leads 60/38 for the "under 65" group.


Why are there 4% more Republicans being polled than Democrats in Iowa when Democrats have a voter registration advantage in that state? Though much smaller than in 2008, recent numbers do show a Democratic registration advantage in Iowa. If the poll truly reflected this, the President would be leading there due to his advantage with independents.


Please please please do a poll of "early voters" in a state that has no early voting. I bet you won't do it because it will reveal just how many people are lying about voting early.

Sometimes my fellow Democrats are too easily discouraged. It's like if Obama is up in 90% of the polls, they focus on the 10% where he's down and swear that the sky is falling.

We are winning. We will win on November 6th.

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?"
