I doubt that Huckabee will run. Please replace his name with Rick Santorum in all future polls, because it's pretty much a guarantee that Santorum is going at it again.


Huckabee will run if he thinks he can win, and he won Iowa in 2008!


It's hard to understand by Schweitzer is included but Bernie Sanders is not, or why Martinez is included but Santorum isn't.

Otherwise, thanks the tally! I love reading your polls.


Oh, Iowa, my Iowa!!! We have all extremes--Conservatives, Evangelicals, Paul supporters. No place for the moderate Republicans. I think many of the establishment Republicans are so disgusted with politics in this state that they just stay home. I'm beginning to feel the same way.

Joleen North

I hope Ted Cruz runs. A Cruz/Rubio ticket would be awesome.


Yup, the 'front runners' are a moderate and a progressive liberal. The country may well be doomed! I'm almost ready for a benevolent dictator to straighten things out!


For the future national surveys, do you think you could break the results down by geography of the respondent? (South, Midwest, Northeast, and West) That would be useful in determining where the various candidates are stronger (from the results you've shown so far, Hillary seems to be very strong in the South, while less so in the Midwest for instance.)

obama drone strike

Why not ask the Iowa voters what they think about laws such as the NDAA that give Obama the power to indefinitely detain and assassinate without charge or trial any US citizen he deems a threat? How come no one in the media ever polls about this? Or what about the 16 year old US citizen Obama blew away with a drone strike? Do the Dem voters who once protested against civil liberty infractions and war under Bush now support this?


Gov. Huckabee will run....it's his time. The country couldn't have a better candidate or a better president.


I think Louise Slaughter should be Hillary's Veep.

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?"
