Your polls are quite humorous. What are you going to say when Romney wins both OH and VA?


Why do you continue to use 2008 turnout models that research shows isnt going to happen this election?


One more thing. It appears you think democrats will have an even greater turnout than 2008.

PPP missed Scott Walker's winning margin by 4%.

Your poll is so skewed. If it isn't than there is some serious cheating going on in Ohio. I as an Ohioan will challenge the results in Ohio. I have seen first hand the overwhelming support for Romney in Ohio. Typical Democrat strongholds have Romney signs all over. 32,000 people turned out for Romney Friday night in West Chester. Ollama only roused 200 with Stevie Wonder in Cleveland on Friday. His largest crowd was in Lima and there were less than 2000 people there. Springfield was pitiful, so low of a turnout no one wanted to report it. Tonight in Cincinnati he was placed in a smaller arena, 13,000 capacity, rather than the huge Nippert Field he spoke in 2008. Romney had over 32,000 show up in Pennsylvannia....QUITE a dramatic difference people. Romney is on fire, and by all means has this election.

Your liberal leanings favoring Ollama may just turn out to give him a big surprise in Ohio. Awwwww.....what a let down for him.

+8 Democrat oversample in Ohio
+5 Democrat oversample in Virginia (19% black sample? +10% women sample too?)

When you apply reality to these polls...


Will you conservatives be back to kiss the ring when you're proven wrong? Or will you disappear just like in 2008?

If Obama loses this election, you can blame/thank the Right for bamboozling him. How is it ethical that an entire news network questions the President’s citizenship for four years to create doubt in voters while a fringe element of the far right demonizes and degrades him? Most of this is financed by the rich who want to keep their stranglehold on the flow of wealth in our country. Watch the white hands apply the Blackface to our first African-American President at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/10/bamboozling-obama.html

Looks like PPP was right after all.

Johnny Mack

I wonder if PPP can give us some odds on hearing apologies from commonlogic, Chris, L Hesler, and Rain McManis?

Calhoun James

This just shows how stupid liberals are.

Buck Tard

yeah.. shows how stupid people are.. these are the same tools they interview on the street w/ Jay Leno..

Bill c

News flash - the election is over. However, Obama keeps campaigning.

Doreen Andrus

This is complete and utter fallacy and editorialized bias.This isn't scientific and does not reflect people in the US anywhere . The reason I know this is its set up on FaceBook and probably the others to say people I know personally LIKE Obama and I know for a fact they emphatically dont !

low life

why is this on Yahoo home page now?

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?"
