For example, in the poll on the Alaska Senate race, PPP's Tom Jensen states that "Palin is hated by Alaskans with a 59% disapproval rating" but then goes on to advise that President Obama is simply "an obstacle in Alaska with a 59% disapproval rating." Those sentences put PPP into perspective.
It must be fairly stated that in the nationwide presidential election PPP did extremely well getting a near perfect result in their final state by state predictions in the Obama versus Romney race.
However on the state and senate level they often go massively awry, (they predicted Cruz and Sanford would lose for example) and there is no reason to take their Alaska poll seriously when they advise that Senator Begich would "take 20% of GOP votes if Palin ran against him." Even on their head to head polling it would only take a normal shift of the "20%" back to the GOP on election day, especially if it was clear that control of the senate hinged on the Alaska result, for Palin to win. Here is a good point in respect of the poll's bias;
PPP 's Alaska poll has 46% that are solid Democrat/Left wing that is about 8% too high.
What can be taken from the poll is that if PPP states that Palin is the choice of Republicans for the senate nomination, then she surely is. The idiots on the left who are carping that Palin has only 36% support can't see that if she runs and Miller pulls out, which would be likely, then the majority of his conservative support would go to her and she would be near or above 50%..
The highly respected "Electoral-Vote.com predicts Palin would defeat Begich "in this very red state"
Here is Conservatives4Palin's take which links to Hot Air's generally positive take on the poll which includes the polling data.
PPP released a poll today which focuses on the 2014 Alaskan-Senate race. The fact that the mainstream media is using it to create “Palin” headlines proves why she was right recently when she told Sean Hannity that the GOP needed the right candidate to take down Senator Mark Begich.
