Please test gay marriage and the congressional generic - and obviously the Senate and gubernatorial contests!


No pollster has yet polled the 2016 race in New Mexico, so please poll Hillary against the most likely GOP candidates here (Huckabee, Paul, Christie, Bush, Ryan, Cruz, Rubio, Perry, Walker, Jindal). Thanks. :)

There has been a little bit of talk about Governor Susana Martinez potentially making a presidential bid in 2016. Maybe you could poll New Mexicans and see what they think of it?

For kicks and giggles, how about some Breaking Bad related questions?

*What is Walter White's favorability in New Mexico?
*How would Walter White do against Susana Martinez in the race for Governor?

Okay, if you don't want to be too ridiculous, maybe ask "Have you watched the finale of Breaking Bad?" and whether or not they enjoyed it.

Also, if you do 2016 polling, please be sure to include Brian Sandoval and Susana Martinez. Maybe just flat out ask if New Mexicans think Susana Martinez should run for President in 2016?

Noveed Safipour

Oh--sorry to post again--but please do ask about marijuana legalization. I understand they may consider it at some point, and they are next door neighbors to Colorado.


Hey guys,

Can you include Vladimir Putin in your next GOP 2016 poll.

I'd love to see his ratings, also how well he runs against the GOP field.

All I hear from Republicans is how much they love Putin. He has a early 2011 Trump vibe.

Definitely poll gay marriage, cause I haven't seen one done here in over a year


check in on Bill Richardson's popularity or lack thereof.

Ask about bill clinton's popularity too, stu rothenberg complained that pundits are assuming his popularity will help candidates without polling to back this up, so let's give him a poll.

might as well poll about pot legalization.

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
