New PPP Poll On #HB2 Nearly Identical To Last Poll, Including Dem Heavy Sample

IIn April, Left leaning Public Policy Polling (PPP) did a survey that included HB 2.

I took that poll and had some fun messing with their sample. I also reviewed the results , which said more about parties and zip codes than anything about HB2.

PPP has released a second poll. I have a lay out of all the questions at the bottom of this article. Here are a few tidbits first.

This new poll is very similar to the first one. In fact, the needle really didn’t move much either way from their April poll. HB 2 only lost one point of support from May to April. Continue reading

PPP Flawed Methodology Not A Bug, But A Feature?

In my travels this morning, I spied an article at New Republic about Public Policy Polling entitled, There’s Something Wrong With America’s Premier Liberal Pollster – The problem with PPP’s methodology. The article points out that PPP has been deleting questions to avoid criticism, following no consistent methodology, bad sampling and, in essence, weighting questions to get the results they like.
Excerpts with emphasis added:

After examining PPP’s polls from 2012 and conducting a lengthy exchange with PPP’s director, I’ve found that PPP withheld controversial elements of its methodology, to the extent it even has one, and treated its data inconsistently….. Continue reading

Media Bias Alert: Charlotte Observer Headlines Only Poll With Obama Ahead

Prepping for more water carrying during the upcoming DNC in Charlotte, the Charlotte Observer’s recent article headlines the only poll showing Obama ahead in North Carolina:
Poll: Obama holds onto slight lead over Romney in N.C.

RALEIGH – Democratic President Barack Obama holds a narrow lead over Republican Mitt Romney in North Carolina, according to a new poll.

Obama has a 49-46 percent lead over Romney, according to a survey by Public Policy Polling, a Democratic-leaning firm based in Raleigh. The lead is within the margin of error.

Then scroll down to the bottom:

Other recent polls by Rasmussen Reports have shown Romney up 49-44, Civitas Institute has shown Romney up 49-48, PPP, has shown Obama up 47-46, and Project New American has shown Romney up 49-48.

The article, of course, doesn’t link to the actual poll. Full press release is here. Buried down in the questions asked, we find this:

Q17 If you are a Democrat, press 1. If a Republican,
press 2. If you are an independent or identify
with another party, press 3.
Democrat ……………………………………………….. 45%
Republican……………………………………………… 33%
Independent/Other…………………………………… 21%

Gee, +12 Democrat sampling over Republican and +24 over Independent.
