Thank you for truly a great list of ideas on where we could poll this week. Very good suggestions.
Here are the finalists:
California: How vulnerable is Barbara Boxer to a challenge from Carly Fiorina? And now that the Governor's race is down to a more manageable number of candidates and thus easier to poll, who is the front runner?
Iowa: A Republican poll out last week showed a strange dichotomy- Chet Culver with good approval numbers, at least in this political climate, but bad reelect numbers. We would test him against some specific challengers, and also look at fav/unfavs for some of the leading 2012 GOP Presidential possibilities (although among the general electorate, way too early to try to do it among likely caucus goers.)
Louisiana: This one will be getting my personal vote. How does Charlie Melancon do against David Vitter, and in general is Vitter really vulnerable or not? Plus, is Bobby Jindal more popular in his home state than Tim Pawlenty?
Voting is open until 11 AM Wednesday, we'll do the poll in the winning state over the weekend, and start releasing numbers from it on Tuesday.
