Was there some kind of cheating that disqualified New Jersey, because when I look at the poll results, it is showing New Jersey over Florida 31% to 30%.

I was hoping you would poll NJ, since it has a Senate election in less than 3 weeks that you have never polled, and a governor's race just another 3 weeks after that you haven't polled since last November. And while Booker and Christie are consistently winning comfortably, the margins have been varying wildly from pollster to pollster, so it would be interesting to see how the best pollster views these races.

Hopefully you will end up polling these races before the elections come.


FL Gov

Dem Primary: Charlie Crist, Ryan Adam Lipner, Marcelle Martelly, Nan Rich, Jessica Lana Stewart

GOP Primary: Rick Scott, Elizabeth Cuevas-Neunder, Tim Devine, Robert Pribble, Berthram Samuel, Joe Smith

General Scott vs. Crist, Scott vs. Rich


I think Jeb Bush should be included in the 2016 presidential primary and general election polls. I'd be interested in seeing how Rick Scott would fair in a primary against Allen West (and just for fun, why not test a Scott/Jeb 2014 primary as well?). In addition, I'd love to see how Rubio's numbers are holding up with Republicans in the wake of his immigration reform efforts. Anecdotal information suggests that the Tea Party is souring on him, and I think a Rubio/West 2016 senatorial primary poll might say a lot about this. Finally, I think you should poll Floridians' attitudes on the Cuba embargo, on a government shutdown, on a default and on whether they identify more with the South or with New York/the mid-Atlantic.

Chris S.

For 2016 presidential general election matchups, you've polled Bush vs. Clinton and Rubio vs. Clinton in Florida before, but I don't think you've ever polled Christie vs. Clinton there. Florida's the one big swing state where we haven't seen a Christie vs. Clinton poll from you or any other pollster, so it would be great if you could do that one.


Bill Nelson approval rating.

Pam Bondi's approval rating.

Does Pam Bondi's decision to cancel an execution for a fundraiser make you more or less likely to vote for her in 2014?

Do you think Marco Rubio can be the savior of the Republican Party? (front cover of TIME Magazine earlier this year)

Mark B.

Please poll medical marijuana.


Definitely poll gay marriage!

Chris S.

Actually, yes, seconding Bradley on a Cuba embargo question. That would be interesting. Should the trade embargo be lifted? And should the travel ban be lifted?


The national congressional generic and gay marriage, please!


Jeff DeLuca

Crist v. Rich Dem Gov Primary
Statewide Favorables on Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Extra points for a 2016 matchup between Rubio and DWS


Have you or some one you know drawn a gun to "stand your ground"?


Ask about gay marriage.

Dana Cummings

I expect, that if and when you poll Florida's Gubernatorial Race, you will include Libertarian candidate, Adrian Wyllie.


Please add all options for governor to the poll including the Libertarian candidate Adrian Wyllie. If it won't effect anything then there's no harm adding him, but by doing so you are giving the voters a clearer picture of what their ballot will look like on election day.


Adrain Wyllie 2014 governor of Florida!

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?"
