For Florida: Do you think the number of days available for Early Voting in Florida should be...

Kept the same?

Maybe should provide some context before asking the question, but not sure.


In the 2012 Senate race, would you say you voted:

For Bill Nelson
Against Bill Nelson
For Connie Mack IV
Against Connie Mack IV


Possible Florida Dems for Governor
--Charlie Crist
--Buddy Dyer
--Alex Sink
--Nan Rich

--Virginia Foxx
--Sue Myrick
--James Cain
--Phillip Berger
--Robin Hayes

Florida: 2016 presidential election matchups between Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton, as well as between Marco Rubio and Hillary Clinton.


For Florida:

Would Gay marriage pass?

As for Governor's race, please try a GOP primary between:

Scott vs. Pam Bondi (State AG)
Scott vs. Allen West

For the general election:

Scott vs. Debbie Washerman-Shultz


Do 2016 polling for both parties in Florida.


1. Approval/disapproval of President Obama.
2. How people remember voting (note that 7% either voted for someone other than Obama or Romney, but only 42% remember voting for Romney but 50% remember voting for Obama. That is remarkable).
3. Generic ballot for US Congress.
4. How the fiscal cliff went.
6. National Rifle Association
7. Willing to pay higher taxes to handle mental illness more effectively?

For Florida Governor please use:
any democrats, but I want to see if Crist would run as an indpendent and if it would make an impact.

Also for Florida and North Carolina do a GOP/Democrat presidential primary poll.

Have the GOP include,
Mike Huckabee, Condoleezza Rice, Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Chris Christie, Susana Martinez and Rand Paul.

The democratic poll should include:
Hillary Clinton, Deval Patrick, Mark Dayton, Andrew Cuomo, Joe Biden, Brian Schweitzer, and Elizabeth Warren


NC Voters: Should Ron Riviera be fired by the Carolina Panthers?


Obviously, you're testing Christ against Scott. For christ, it might be interesting to see if the Dems want somebody more liberal, and who want someone more moderate/conservative than scott. Meek and West might work well if you're looking for a more specific primary challengers to the frontrunners. Also, Puerto Rican independence?

For NC, voter ID should be a must. A question on 'is there voter fraud' or somesuch. NC polling might actually be interesting for 2016 (whereas FL its pointless), to see if it'll be reliably red and 08 was a one time occurence, or if Clinton can beat, say, Jeb Bush. But i assume you'll have 100 opportunities to poll that.

For North Carolina:

Primary battle Kay Hagan vs. Mike McIntyre

Jason Fishkin

North Carolina
- Favorability of Mccrory vs Richard burr. In other words, who is more likely to be defeated in '16?
- Who are the D's that are likely to challenge the governor and Burr.
- Is Hagan susceptible to a primary challenge from the left?

Samian Quazi

Here's my suggestions!


Would former Gov. Charlie Crist benefit more in a rematch against Sen. Marco Rubio in 2016 or in a gubernatorial race against Gov. Rick Scott next year?

Also, I'd like to see the favorables/unfavorables for Rick Scott and Alex Sink. Since Rick Scott has generally had pretty low ratings, it'd be interesting to see if Florida voters are having "buyer's remorse" and would want a do-over match between Sink and Scott.

North Carolina:

Of course, we know that the day after North Carolina voters approved Amendment One (the state constitutional gay marriage ban), President Obama went on national TV to endorse gay marriage. Subsequently, African-American voters' approval of gay marriage shot up nationwide.

PPP found that 60-65% of African-Americans in NC supported the ban:

I'd want to see if African-American voters in NC have changed their minds on gay marriage, or if 60-65% of these voters are still against gay marriage.


Hagan (D) - McCrory (R)

Scott (R) - Crist (D)
Scott (R) - Sink (D)
Scott (R) - Betty Castor (D)


Pam Bondi vs. Rick Scott (for the GOP primary voters) should yield interesting results.


Ask NC voters how they voted on Amendment 1, and how they would vote today.

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?"
