Marriage equality, since it might be on the ballot in either 2014 or 2016.

Paul Sickel

Does Rick Snyder's signing of Right-to-work legislation make you more likely or less likely to vote for him in 2014?


Question idea: "Do you support or oppose an amendment to the state Constitution that would permit laws that include appropriations provisions to be subject to referendum?" There is a petition drive in progress for just such an amendment, after all.

As for potential Senate Republicans, Hoekstra's pretty much a perennial candidate at this point, but Dick DeVos might be worth polling about. Justin Amash is a unique enough figure that even if he doesn't want to run for Senate, asking about him might provide some interesting results.


A statewide ballot initiative to raise the minimum wage


Mike Rogers, Justin Amash and Ex-Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land as GOP candidates to Peters.


Gay marriage and the congressional and/or legislative generic!

Mark Miller

And,I second the suggestion of marriage equality.


Should gay marriage be "legal" or "illegal"?

Tom Hill

Gary Peters vs Mike Rogers
Gary Peters vs Terri Lynn Land
Gary Peters vs Justin Amash
Gary Peters vs Saul Anuzis
Gary Peters vs Rob Steele


MI Gov
Snyder vs. Schauer is the only matchup needed. No one will primary either.

MI Sen
Peters vs. Amash
Peters vs. Land
Peters vs. Rogers
Might as well do a Amash/Land/Rogers primary not that it'll happen, but to show who is the preferred candidate.


Would you approve Mike Rogers being appointed FBI Director.

Kurt Dykstra and Saul Anuzis as Republicans.

Approval/disapproval of emergency manager law, emergency manager being appointed for Detroit, and Detroit.

Fav/unfav for Ruth Johnson


Do Republican primaries with both Land and Rogers against Amash and the others.


Poll Gary Peters versus Mike Rogers and Justin Amash. Also poll a hypothetical primary between Rogers and Amash.

Ted W

How about a question regarding Debbie Stabenow's new farm bill? I'd be interested to learn how informed the people of Michigan are about the nature of proposed changes and their approval. Poll Stabenow's approval, too, please!


Are the trees in Michigan the right height?
Do you approve of the Michigan Right-to-Work Law?
Now that Rick Snyder has been governor for more than two years, do you think he is "one tough nerd?"
Also poll Terri Lynn Land and Justin Amash for the GOP for Senate.

Samian Quazi

Hillary Clinton vs. Rand Paul, Chris Christie, and Marco Rubio

For or against affirmative action.
Should the US Supreme Court uphold or overturn the state's ban on affirmative action in university admissions?


Please poll Justin Amash for senate.

Chris S.

With Florida moving its primary later ( http://www.tampabay.com/news/politics/elections/rubio-urges-legislature-agrees-to-push-back-2016-presidential-primary/2119078 ), Michigan is set to actually be more of a key early primary state in 2016 (Feb. 23, a week before Super Tuesday). So it would be great if you could do a 2016 presidential primary poll there.


I think Peters vs Amash would be interesting as he is one of the most unique republicans with his libertarian leanings.


I want to see polled the strongest Democratic potential candidates for AG and SoS vs the Republican incumbents.

Also I would like to see from a long list of prominent Democrats, who would be favourite of the voters for Lieutenant Governor.

Republicans for the senate race:
J Engler
F Upton
J Amash
M Rogers
D Camp
T Lynn Land


2016 head-to-heads with Clinton.


Peters vs Justin Amash
Peters vs Saul Anuzis
Peters vs Ruth Johnson
Peters vs Terri Lynn Land
Peters vs Pete Lund
Peters vs Mike Rogers

Sommer F.

Marriage Equality


Definitely tree height!


"Do you support or oppose requiring the legislature to have a non-partisan service agency draw the House, Senate, and Congressional district lines after the census is done?"

A question like this or similar to it about redistricting.


Can we get an approval/disapproval of Obamacare and/or a question on the legislature refusing to expand Medicaid?

I'd also love to see a question on the Detroit mayoral race. I know it's a statewide poll, but it'd be interesting to see how closely people out of the city are following it, and if the rest of the state or the suburbs have a preferred candidate.

And how about something fun-- approval/disapproval of Battle Creek, given that both Snyder and Schauer claim it as home?

Morgan Whitacre

Support for repealing the right-to-work law. I think the UAW is going to spearhead a ballot campaign to get in on the '14 ballot.

Cody Smith

Should same-sex marriage be legal or illegal in Michigan?


The recently appointed Detroit emergency manager has expressed an interest in selling all the artwork from the Detroit Institute of Art to cover the city's debt. What is your opinion on this?

Ask about gay marriage.


I would like to test Justin Amash against Mark Schauer, in case Rick Snyder chooses not to run for re-election (which i think is especially likely.

Also test Land, Rogers, Amash in a Republican Primary For Senate, and each against Peters.


In terms of 2016, more Dems should be tested. I'd like to see (in case Biden and Clinton don't run):

Brown (Ohio)

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?"
