In Louisiana please poll Hillary Clinton vs. Bobby Jindal (and Rubio and Christie) to see if she does better than Obama there (-> Bill Clinton won LA).

In North Carolina please poll Hillary vs. Rubio and Christie because it's a swing state.


2014 Congressional races in NC - NC06, NC07.


Bobby Jindal approvals, obviously.

Same sex marriage, as well: Not only, yes-no-civil unions, but if you have changed your mind on the matter within the past year, and if your friends/family/neighbors would support it.

Also, approvals on the NC Governor's proposal to end the state's income and corporate taxes and raise the sales tax.

Peter Walz

What do they think of Duke Energy request for 12% residential rate hike?

Are voters concerned that the legislature wants to remove and replace all current members of the Utility Commission, the body that would decide on the rate hike request?

Are voters concerned that Gov. McCrory would be appointing many of these new commissioners and that McCrory may have a conflict of interest as an employee of Duke Energy for nearly 30 years?


In NC, poll on Medicaid expansion (support or oppose) and refusal of federal unemployment insurance benefits beginning in July.


Test Huey Long's favorability in LA!


On policy, could you ask:
-Would an NRA endorsement make you more or less likely to vote for a candidate?

Noah Lieberman

In NC: Should the Charlotte Bobcats be renamed to the Charlotte Hornets?


For Louisiana:

some good potential GOP opponents for Landrieu would be Bill Cassidy, Jeff Landry, and Jeff Fleming. Since the state uses jungle primaries for federal races again it may be good to provide everyone's name in one question rather than polling a GOP primary.

Favorabilities for Mitch Landrieu would be good. Also a question on whether voters want David Vitter to run for Governor or not.

it would also be interesting to get favorabilities for Roger Goodell, Edwin Edwards, and Mardi Gras.


And by Jeff Fleming I mean John Fleming.

John Van Noate

are NC voters happy with the state's pronounced rightward turn since McCrory took over the state house.


NC what do they think of someone who is against Pre-k to head the state department of child development and early Ed


NC -- has McCroy's giving his cabinet members a pay raise while the legislature proposes cuts to unemployment benefits had any effect on people's view of him.


Please test 2016 GE matchups with Clinton...that would be awesome! Especially in LA...


For Louisiana:

- "Do you support the idea of having armed guards at the front of primary and/or secondary schools?"

- "Do you support the idea of arming teachers and other school employees with firearms?"

- "If the candidates for the 2015 gubernatorial election were Republican Scott Angelle and Democrat Mitch Landrieu, who would you vote for?"

- "If the candidates for the 2015 gubernatorial election were Republican Jay Dardenne and Democrat Mitch Landrieu, who would you vote for?"

- "If the candidates for the 2014 senate election were incumbent Democrat Mary Landrieu and Republican Scott Angelle (or Jay Dardenne), who would you vote for?"

- "Do you think that Bobby Jindal should run for president in 2016?"

Also, if you are indeed doing 2016-related questions, please include Condi Rice in your options instead of Mike Huckabee (who most say is uninterested in winning the Republican nomination).


NC: How would you refer to those who attend UNC-Chapel Hill? "Students" or "Butts"

Do you agree with Pat McCrory's criticism of UNC?

For NC: Favorability ratings on the Big 4 North Carolina Universities: Wake Forest, UNC, Duke, and NCSU. Can't wait to see the poll!


Ask about gay marriage in Louisiana.


How does NC feel about Republican efforts to fire all commission and advisory board members and have Pat McCrory appoint new members, as well as the Republican proposal to add two new seats to the NC Supreme Cout to be appointed by MCCrory rather than elected as current court members are.

Also, do independents still see McCrory as a "moderate."

Brad Friedman

How many legal voters are you comfortable with disenfranchising to stop each case of supposed "voter fraud"?

Sam Black

Opinion of making English our national language
Opinion of drug testing for welfare

sorry for my poor english, i am italian, if you want to know according with the polls berlusconi is going to lose the next general election. in my opinion you should test the race for senate in both states and the presidencial race just in nc, because of the peculiarity of the primaries, i don't think louisiana can be significant at now.

Vicki Boyer

NC--- good suggestions above!
Ask for approval rating of the state legislature.

How do you feel about the state losing a possible 23,000 jobs due to rejection of ACA by state legislature?

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
