Three things:
1. Support for gay marriage (and I'd be interested to know if that support lines up with HOW it was implemented in our state, i.e. do they approve of the judicial decision).
2. Support for a gas tax on fracking. It'll be an issue in the fall.
3. Would be interested to see how voters view Corbett's handling of the Paterno situation. Would be an interesting crosstab with voter ID as well as preferred Gov candidate.


Proposed questions:
1 If you did not vote in 2010, will you be voting this year?
2 In light of the recent shooting in California, would you now support stricter gun control laws in Pennsylvania?
3 Do you support making Interstates toll roads?
4 Would you be willing to give up door-to-door postal delivery?

The recent passage of the Farm Bill now allows for universities to grow industrial hemp for research facilities in states that have passed pro-hemp legislation. At least 14 states have passed such laws. Colorado will be growing 1,300 acres of industrial hemp this year and Kentucky will be growing it in 8 pilot projects. Hawaii is also expected to grow hemp this year and more will follow next year.

In January, we have been promised by state Senator Mike Folmer that an industrial hemp bill will be introduced to Pennsylvania.

I propose asking the question, "Should Pennsylvania allow the cultivation of industrial hemp as allowed in the Farm Bill passed in February of 2013?"

Feel free to re-phrase the question, but that is the gist of what we want to know. Should Pa. re-legalize the growing of hemp.


I'd like to see support levels for a state constitutional amendment requiring a nonpartisan redistricting process to eliminate gerrymandering.

For more lighthearted questions, Eagles/Steelers favoritism, and "Do you know where the name 'Pennsylvania' comes from?"

I think the most obvious question will be "Do you support gay marriage now being legal in Pennsylvania?" On the same topic, ask for support/opposition to a law banning discrimination based on sexual orientation.

On other topics, certainly ask whether or not the state approves of hydraulic fracking, support/opposition to Obamacare, and support/opposition to a $10/hour minimum wage.


Approval/Disapproval for Kathleen Kane, in light of her recent issues.

Where does Pennsylvania stand on with amnesty and immigration?

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?"
