Taking suggestions on a bunch of stuff

We're taking suggestions on a bunch of stuff:

-Who should we include as the bonus Republican on our next 2012 Presidential poll

-What other interesting questions should we include on that national poll?

We're tentatively planning to poll Delaware and New Hampshire this coming weekend, including the Republican Senate primaries in those states. What questions beyond the obvious horse race stuff should we ask on those polls?

As always, appreciate all the suggestions.

Any chance you can do Maryland as well to see if Murphy poses any real threat to Ehrlich?

Take Gingirch off and add Pawlenty and Thune.

Also -- Pence, Cantor, or Ryan.

Assuming the candidate were otherwise qualified, would you vote for a GOP candidate in the primary who voted for TARP?

For the 2012 poll, please ask if voters want to keep or abolish the electoral college and elect the President by a national popular vote instead.

Delaware Question: "Should the Democrats maintain control of the House after November, do you think Steny Hoyer would present a more balanced approach as Speaker of the House, rather than Nancy Pelosi"?

GOP President--Haley Barbour

In Deleware, Tom Carper approval and 2012 macth-ups. New Hampshire, do me a big one and see if things would be different there if Lych were the senate candidate instead of Hodes. Please!

Add Olympia Snowe to your list of Republicans.

Do Republicans want a candidate who ran for president in 2008 or someone "new" running for the first time? Would be interesting to see how much of a headstart the Romney/Huckabee crowd has over the rest of the field.

Horse Race numbers for unknown politicians are worthless.

Try a well-known non-politician, a Toby Keith type, but more serious. Franklin Graham, the ghost of Charlton Heston, Joe Scarborough, someone like that. Not Glenn Beck.

For the NH poll, ask if the respondents are of Franco-American heritage.

For the DE primary, ask about Cap & Trade.

New Hampshire questions:

Casino Gambling
Marijuana Legalization
Gay Marriage

All have been issues in the state's politics but little polling has been done in the Live Free or Die state.

You should add Virginia's AG, Ken Cuccinelli, to your next Presidential Poll

We're not likely to do more than two states this weekend. A ton of states have primaries, including the GOP Senate one in Wisconsin, but we can't do them all. NH and DE are probably the two that have gotten the most coverage of late and seen the most change in the polls, at least in NH's case.

"what ever happened to the texas/???? that was supposed to happen this weekend?"

Chill your grills. We start releasing both Maine and Texas tomorrow. We had a holiday weekend just end, y'know.

Run a bunch of libertarian questions in New Hampshire. Full marijuana legalization, gay marriage, gambling, prostitution, secession, etc.

"Do Republicans want a candidate who ran for president in 2008 or someone "new" running for the first time?"

We asked that in August, and 24% said they wanted someone other than our usual 5 running, to 54% who wanted someone else.

Delaware at-large seat GOP primary, please. There hasn't been a non-internal poll released yet for the Urquhart/Rollins race.

Add Gov. Mitch Daniels to the 2012 Presidential roster.

Why dont you talk about Republican plans to revive the economy? What is the parties solutions to our crisis. This shouldnt be about candidates, it should be about platform and spare the moderates your "flame" issues! Gingrich, Palin, Pawlenty are loosers. Truly, I see no one who is now a republican presenting any solutions. We have been labeled the Party of No for good reason. There are as many unemployed republicans, republicans loosing our homes, and you want us to continue voting for teabaggers. No one without a solution should be on the ballot.

DE house At Large and the NH House Primaries if you have enough of a sample. Also, generic of course

Ask whether a candidate's position on health care reform is affecting their choices.

Then ask a question designed to test their familiarity with the content of the health care reform bill as actually passed.

David Petraes for Republican.

Unstable Isotope said...

Please poll the GOP DE-AL primary in Delaware. Also, ask about same sex marriage approval in DE.

Since you polled Basil Marceaux last month, can you see how Mayor McCheese polls against Obama?

The Interesting Times said...

Poll the 2012 Republican Presidential primary in Delaware.

I'd still like to see a poll on public attitudes toward Obama's back-to-school speeches.

For questions in Delaware and New Hampshire:

I would be curious to see who all of the Republican Primary voters would have voted for a month ago. I say that because in NH, Binnie has supposedly started blitzing heavily even though Ayotte was far ahead, would be interesting to see if he has had any effect.

In Delaware, the same question could apply. Did people just jump on the Christine O'Donnell bandwagon or did they like her all along?

As an alternate question in Delaware, "how does Christine O'Donnell's Tea Party support affect your opinion of her favorable/unfavorable, etc." If that question comes back negatively, then the Tea Party being her main audience could be false. It might just be people who don't like Castle.

It is my understanding, as per Politico's Maggie Haberman, that Rudy Giuliani is planning to run again in 2012.

I agree about poll the hypothesis of Lynch running for the senate.

And for Delaware, I would like to see about the hypothesis of Kaufman running for reelection.

Please, include results for Lynch-Ayotte and Kaufman-Castle.

Paul Ryan for president

Poll Chris Christie for President (he's making the rounds around the country, and going to Iowa soon, plus he's been fairly prominent) or some well known conservative celebrity.

As for Delaware, ask voters if they are voting against O'Donnell, or against Castle. (and vice versa) You should poll gay marriage there too.
