Maybe whether bison should be managed like wildlife or livestock. Also tribal issues, languages are very controversial.


I would test State Superintendent Denise Juneau and State Auditor Monica Linden. If Schweitzer doesn't run, they are the two most likely Democratic candidates, in order.


Montana's been at the forefront of campaign finance in the last few years, such as the state's challenge to Citizen's United in American Tradition Partnership, Inc. v. Bullock (2012) and current proposed legislation on eliminating dark money in campaigns. Perhaps you should ask Montanans how they feel about the proposal, as well as how they feel more broadly about limitless corporate independent expenditures?


It'd be interesting to see Montanan's views on physician-assisted suicide, especially after the failure of a bill in the state legislature that would have criminalized physicians for that practice in the state.


Stephanie Schriock for Dems.

Ryan Zinke and Denny Rehberg for Republicans, plus Daines, Racicot, Edmunds, and Stapleton.

Gay marriage and civil unions, undoubtedly. Since Montana allows initiatives on ballots, if a constitutional amendment allowing gay marriage were on the ballot in 2014, would you vote for or against it?

Hillary Clinton's favorables and unfavorables in the state.


I would be very interested in seeing where the 2016 Presidential election stands in Montana. More specifically, I would like to see Hillary Clinton vs. Jeb Bush just to see if Hillary can carry Montana just as her husband, Bill, did in 1992. Other interesting match-ups would be Hillary Clinton vs. Rand Paul and Hillary Clinton vs. Marco Rubio.


I would like to see numbers for the presidential year primary and match-up


With an upcoming decision next week on gay marriage from the Supreme Court, I'd be interested to see a straight up legal/illegal question from Montana (which will be the last survey before a potential landmark decision).


For Montana in the General election test Democrats Brian Schweitzer, Denise Juneau, & Monica Lindeen VS Republicans Champ Edmunds, Cory Stapleton, Steve Daines, & Marc Racicot. Also please poll the 2016 presidential primaries Democrats Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, Brian Schweitzer, & Andrew Coumo. And for Republicans Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Paul Ryan, Rick Santorum, & Jeb Bush.

For the senate: do a three candidate poll with Schweitzer, Daines, and 2012 libretarian nominee Dan Cox. Considering he got 6% of the vote last time, he could be a game changer.


Please ask about gay marriage

Austin Knudson

What is Montana's thoughts on repealing the oil and gas tax holiday with some needed money going towards infrastructure in impacted areas.


Please poll Governor Racicot, Ex-Rep Rehberg, and Rep. Daines against Governor Schweitzer and Denise Juneau.


Baucus just co-sponsored a bill with Whitehouse about coordinating climate action/adaptation plans for federal agencies. Would be interesting to know how people in Montana are considering climate impacts.


Please poll the approval rating of Sen. Tester, Sen. Baucus and Gov. Bullock. Thanks!


Same sex marriage support.
Minimum wage increase.
President Obama approval rating.
Single Payer system support.
2016: Hillary Clinton vs. Christie, Paul, Rubio, Bush

Josh Mizesko

Poll Brian Schweitzer, Denise Juneau and Monica Lindeen against Marc Racicot, Denny Rehberg, Champ Edmunds, Steve Daines, Tim Fox, and Corey Stapelton.
Approvals of Bullock
Approvals of Tester and Baucus
Clinton vs. Paul Ryan, Rand Paul, Jeb Bush, and Marco Rubio


Since the legislature just overturned it's unenforceable sodomy law, poll how many people believe homosexuality should still be a crime


How do they like becoming the first ever congressional district to have 1 million people, when Rhode Island's 2 have just over half a million each.


Throw Ted Cruz in to these 2016 matchups...nobody else seems to have included him.


Also in the 2016 match-ups/primaries, throw in Governor Matin O'Malley of Maryland as well. He seems to have been forgotten too.

-Senate and House races (D: Brian Schweitzer, Nancy Keenan, Denise Juneau, Monica Lindeen, Stephanie Schriock; R: Steve Daines, Marc Racicot, Champ Edmunds, Tim Fox, Denny Rehberg, Corey Stapleton)

-Approvals for Bullock, Tester, Baucus

-Approvals for Obama, Congress

-Gay Marriage

-Background checks

-Campaign financing/Citizens United

-NSA surveillance

-climate change


very few polls and always the same states polled... very boring...


Favoribility ratings for the NRA and Mike Bloomberg, support for assault weapons ban, support for NSA surveilance, and favoribility ratings for Hillary Clinton and Marco Rubio.


Approval ratings for Steve Bullock, Max Baucas and Jon Tester would be good as well.


Why not poll the lone congressional seat while you're at it?

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?"
