A wide range of choices,,,

For next week's vote on where we poll we're getting an early start and doing something a little different. There are 18 states that we can poll where we a) haven't polled the 2012 election at all yet and b) don't have a poll coming next week already. So we're putting all of those out there as options and we'll do the top two. Voting's open until Monday afternoon. After we have our winners we'll take suggestions to get into the actual details of what to poll in those states. Have a good weekend!

Y'all are beyond overdue for a New Hampshire poll.

A bit off-topic, but when do you plan to release the 2012 Ohio GOP primary numbers ?

WA has a trifecta in 2012. It's definitely worth keeping an eye on.

Curious to see what Illinoisans think of the bullet they dodged (that their neighbors didn't) by narrowly electing Quinn instead of Brady. They're like an island of sanity in the midwest now.

Georgia.

Illinois could be a fun one. Just to see the opinion of the population on their government's liberal pivot on taxes, gay rights, and the death penalty.

I think you're missing Hawaii...

Again, anything other than an umpteenth New Hampshire poll would be useful.

Come on guys, vote for Utah and Arkansas.

Home state popularity is interesting and all (for Obama in IL and Gingrich in GA), but it's very predictable. I'm in the Granite State of Mind this week.

Da hunta, maybe they have done a poll on Hawaii that they'll release next week? Or are doing one this weekend. Could be fun to see, I'm curious about the primary for 2012 most of all.

Yes, because Quinn has helped turn our economy around. I'm still in need of a job!

I voted for Utah. I want to see how popular Orrin Hatch is with the general Republican electorate. His fate will likely be decided at the convention, but if he gets 40% of the vote than there will be a primary to replace him. Polls last year showed Bob Bennett was popular with most Republicans and would have probably won a primary but couldn't make it with the super-activists who show up at conventions. Is Hatch in the same situation? Also interesting to see how Jim Matheson would fare in a statewide race. Republicans will probably try to target him in redistricting, so he might want to run for senate if it looks like Hatch will be taken out by the Tea Party.

Also, how well liked is Huntsman? Does he have any home state support? Does he cut into Romney's support in Utah significantly?

And of course, maybe we'll finally find a state where Palin actually has a substantial lead on Obama.

Why is Oklahoma getting votes?

Anonymous said...

Definitely New Hampshire..early primary state!

Or the Kentucky gubernatorial race!

Alan Robinson said...

Whatever state you choose looking at Gallup's results you have to add Michelle Bachmann in a survey with and without Palin and Hucklebee

It's time for Wyoming to be polled!!!

Anonymous said...

Pleas disqualify Georgia, Washington and Oklahoma.

Someone tries to rig the poll, I have noticed for example that Washington gained about 500 votes within 1 hour. That is simply impossible.

I think the same was done with Georgia and Oklahoma.

So please, throw these 3 states out and poll the states that follow.

We did WY a few months ago.

When will you start releasing FL and MS results ?

The Little said...

Tom, someone's been stuffing the ballots on Georgia, Washington and Oklahoma. I would suggest nixing all three.

Bills are going to have to be paid sooner or later. The election of Quinn will only delay the coming cuts. Funny how everyone complains about cuts when the electorate should be mad that they were promised unsustainable programs in the first place. Illinois is heading toward tough times. Why drag out the inevitable?

How the heck is Okalahoma doing so well!?

Bob said...

Oklahoma pulling in second? Come on people vote for something interesting such as Kentucky, New Hampshire, or Washington for second place. We already know what's going to happen in Oklahoma in 2012. Has there ever been a doubt with that state?

Well at least Georgia is winning, that one could be very interesting.

Bob said...

Well I guess people want Oklahoma to be polled so that they have something to laugh about. Oh well, would have been nice if New Hampshire or Washington was second place instead.

Anonymous said...

someone definitely rigged the poll. there's no way oklahoma gets so many votes and new hampshire gets so few. everyone should vote for georgia and washington now to beat oklahoma!

Anonymous said...

Hey, just because some states (like GA, OK and WA) got organized to get people to vote doesn't mean that 1. there was cheating, and 2. that they should be disqualified.

Don't know about you, but I asked friends to vote for my state (Oklahoma).

Anonymous said...

As a Georgia native, I wanted to see the matchups for president, as well as the GOP primary with Gingrich and Cain locked in. That was my rationale.

Dustin Ingalls said...

"When will you start releasing FL and MS results ?"

On Tuesday like every week.

Anonymous said...

So, which states "won" ?

Anonymous said...

Sorry I have not confiance in these polls. And not cause of the results of this week.

Every week the same rare results...

CT without votes until DKos pay for it.

HI without votes until DKos pay for it.

WA without enough votes every week when the gubernatorial race is likely competitive. And PPP just telling they would not do the gubernatorial if get selected.

ME polled late and without wish to find interesting results.

and nothing about a new poll for New Mexico after Bingaman retires...

Still waiting for NC and MI.

I am very sorry that the polls we release every week that no one pays us for that we do as a public service are not to your satisfaction.

Oklahoma would be interesting to see for several reasons. Yes, we know how it would go in a general election (big-time against Obama), but the GOP primary?

Huckabee lost to McCain here, but could Palin slip by for the lead in 2012? She's popular here. How would Romney do?

Also, in 2012, the only Democrat held seat (federal or state-wide) is the 2nd Congressional District, held by Dan Boren. Fresh off his toughest race ever, could he be vulnerable, given Oklahoma's increasing red-ness (Democrats still hold a voter registration lead, 49-41)?

Hi,

Which 2 states will you poll this weekend ?
