  •  PPP is going to be vindicated (15+ / 0-)

    They have good methodology. When they can put out two polls (their own, then this one for Dkos) and have it only separated by 1 point, I think that speaks to their level of precision. Really love their work, not because it's with us but because they're just a good pollster who has a sense of humor.

    Also, there's a reason why they can afford to do all this polling. They have tons of clients paying them money to do internal polls. People wouldn't be spending money on them unless they were good.

    •  Yes totally agree. PPP is even moved NC (7+ / 0-)

      and Florida into tossup category when means we have the making of another electoral near landslide if Obama can take all the swing states.

      Even Arizona my be in play. (Optimistic)

    •  PPP does not call cell phones (1+ / 0-)

      and I don't think they are the best.  Cook doesn't even consider pollsters that don't call cell phones - with good reason since the young and minorities are the most likely to not have a land line.
