This week we're on tap for our national poll and a single state poll.
I'd love suggestions for good questions to ask on the national poll, and for nominations of who to include as this month's bonus Republican in addition to the ones we test every month- Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, and Newt Gingrich.
We thought about doing an Arizona Senate poll including Gabrielle Giffords this week. We haven't polled that race since it became an open seat and I don't see a lot of point in doing one there that doesn't include Giffords. I asked about a dozen people whose opinion I value whether they were pro or con on doing a poll with Giffords and got a pretty even split. I'm interested in your views as well and maybe if there's not total opposition we can at least give it as a poll vote option sometime this month and if that's what people want, fine, and if not that's fine too.
But for now this week's options are:
-Iowa. Nothing pressing but we haven't done a Republican poll there since early January. It's also a swing state for the general and I'm interested in seeing if folks are still glad they voted for Terry Branstad or if they regret their new (old) Republican Governor just like folks in Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin.
-Nevada. Haven't polled it since it became an open seat so it's an opportunity to test a bunch of different match ups and also get a gauge of the Presidential race in the state.
-New Mexico. Could write the exact same description as Nevada.
-Pennsylvania. It's the important Presidential race state we've gone the longest without polling at this point and also interested to see how Tom Corbett's holding up after a few months in office and if Bob Casey still looks as solid as he did when we polled the state in January.
Voting is open until tomorrow afternoon, don't cheat.
