I just wanted to say congratulations on what looks like a pretty successful night for you guys!


PPP rated the most accurate pollster of 2012! Outstanding work, PPP.

I have been coming here all year, and I have been so impressed with your work. You have nailed numerous difficult-to-poll races, including primaries and low turnout, highly volatile special elections. When you got one wrong here and there, you acknowledged it and talked about it with professionalism and transparency, with an eye toward improving.

You also opened a dialogue with your readers who are interested in polling and in the issues on which you poll. You actually used 2 of my suggestions for tweaking your polling on same-sex marriage in IA and MN.

Transparency, flexibility, openness to new ideas, professionalism, and an adherence to rigorous standards: the results speak for themselves. Congratulations to you all.

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?"
