How Polling Firm PPP Won The Election With Its Hilarious And Infuriating Questions

http://www.businessinsider.com/ppp-poll-questions-public-policy-polling-funny-quirky-obama-romney-2012-11#ixzz2Bz02j2Sq

Because PPP made no qualms about openly rooting for President Barack Obama's re-election, many of the questions such as asking Mississippi and Alabama residents if they believe Obama is Muslim infuriate those on the right. It found that most Republicans in the state believed he was a Muslim.

"Some people think that's a frivolous question to ask," Jensen said. "I think it's important, because it shows that either there are some huge misconceptions about who the president actually is after four years in office, or it's a reflection of straight-up racism and people refusing to accept that the black guy could really be a Christian like they are."

If God exists, do you approve or diapprove of its performance?
Approve---52%
Disapprove---9%
Not sure---40%

If God exists, do you approve or diapprove of its handling of natural disasters?
Approve---50%
Disapprove---13%
Not sure---37%

PPP was the group that asked AL amd MS voters if Obama was a Muslim or a Christian.

Christian--14%
Muslim--45%
Not sure--41%

6. I never saw any evidence that PPP ever openly said one thing or another about

favoring anybody's election. They are just a very good pollster and it's time to drop the (D) behind their name. Why isn't Rasmussen identified as a republican pollster?
