Do you think Jim DeMint started the recession?


Colbert for Senate!


I know a Republican governor will never do it, but poll on how many think Steven Colbert should get the appointment...


For potential Senate appointees:

Tim Scott
Jeff Duncan
Tom Davis
Mick Mulvaney
Alan Wilson
David Wilkins

Also add an additional poll with Haley's name placed along these candidates, since it's possible she could appoint herself.

Capers Philip

Vincent Sheheen (D) vs. Nikki Haley (R)
Harry Ott (D) vs. Nikki Haley (R)
Stephen Colbert (D) vs. Nikki Haley (R)


Bob Inglis, Tim Scott, Joe Wilson and fmr Sen. Hollings for DeMint seat

Amanda D

Get approval of Demint's resignation if it's not already on there.

Michael Hansen

SC Special: tim scott and jenny sanford
graham: trey gowdey
haley: shaheen,seltzer, clyburn

I should know, i live in the state.


Ask about the 2016 GOP and Dem hopefuls. South Carolina is one of the early primaries.


Test Stephen Colbert both as potential appointee or in a primary/general election against Graham.


Use Tim Scott, Mulvaney, and Wilson as the contenders for senate on both appointment and against Graham


DeMint replacement: Scott, Alan Wilson, Jenny Sanford, Henry McMaster

Against Graham: Tom Davis (R - state senator)

Against Haley: Glenn McConnell (R - Lt Gov)


Here's a question I'd like to suggest polling South Carolina about.

Do you support a state law banning discrimination in employment, housing, and public accommodations based on their sexual orientation or gender identity?

Thank you.


Disregard my suggested question. I didn't realize this was limited to just those three subjects above. I'll wait for another time to suggest my question.


Include Stephen Colbert, maybe with both parties. Though if you're asking a serious question, just include him as a Democrat. He'd run as a Republican only as a gag.


Wil Haley consider Colbert for Senate if he 'somehow' gets enough public backing?


Do some 2016 polling for both parties.

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?"
