What we’re thinking
Tom discusses a new survey of North Carolinians…and his encounters with Democratic presidential contenders at the Iowa State Fair.
A new PPP survey shows Joe Biden still in the lead for the 2020 Dem nomination – and also reveals that “progressives” and “moderates” aren’t as far apart as some might have you believe.
Last week Tom said the Mueller testimony wouldn’t change many minds; this week he says the same is true about the Democratic debates. So…what does change people’s minds?
A new survey finds widespread support for Medicaid expansion; new numbers suggest the Democrats may have a shot at winning some Southern states in 2020.
Megan Rapinoe leads Trump 42-41 in a hypothetical presidential head-to-head – which leads Tom to conclude that “electability” really shouldn’t be that big of an issue for Democrats.
The Supreme Court refuses to act on partisan gerrymandering. PPP’s Jim Williams weighs in on the issue – its impact on elections, and what Americans think about it.
A new PPP survey of North Carolinians shows a close race for President, a narrowing race for governor – and widespread bipartisan support for LGBT rights.
The Democratic Party is using polls to identify the top 20 candidates for the upcoming primary debates – but Tom says the difference between 20 and 21 is nebulous at best.
Tom and Aaron examine two polls with provocative results – but less-than-reliable methods. Also, the Democratic presidential field narrows (or maybe not), and UNC baseball gets ready for Auburn.
No polling data this week: instead, Tom and Aaron chat about Aaron’s reading habits. (And a little about UNC baseball.)
