Get ready for a landslide...[roflmao]
What is happiness? The feeling that power is growing, that resistance is overcome.--Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
Consider the source. I would be just as skeptical of Fox News having Rubio up.
Until Gallup and the independent research firms start chiming in, I will consider this just partisan positioning.
i didn't consider it. here's a link though showing PPP predicted romney to win georgia by 3+ when actual results were 7+
PPP is the polling arm of the Democratic party (to their credit, they admit it).
I have discounted their polls as much as I have Fox News' over the last couple of election cycles. This stuff has gotten hyper-partisan and we just don't know who to trust until the established non-partisan pollsters get into the mix.
In their case, they are more concerned with being accurate and maintaining their reputation of quality than who wins the race.
PPP was also the most accurate predictor of outcomes this last election. They work for the Democratic party, but they don't allow that to skew their polls. In response to the OP, who cares about polls almost four years out? Who even knows who will run much less what will happen to change sentiments.
Did ya'll see rubios SOTU rebuttal water bottle mishap?
Yes, and even though I chuckled it is not really a big deal. It was amusing, but it says nothing about how good of a candidate he will be in four years.
Considering all of the stuff from the right, wrt to polling leading up to the November 2012 election, I have a hard time taking anything from one of the board cons/rightists from this board have to say about any polling and/or future elections seriously.

I bet you've heard the saying: "some people never learn."
How about deet's favorite: "the more things change, the more they stay the same"?

It wasnt a big deal I agree, but someone did a side by side comparison with his main counters to Obama they were almiost word for word identical to a Romney stump speach from last fall.
Clinton won't win Georgia in 2016, but it shows how competitive she'll be in the traditional battleground states.
A number of polling firms that conduct their surveys online had strong results. Some telephone polls also did well. But others, especially those that called only landlines or took other methodological shortcuts, performed poorly.
I believe it does say something about what kind of candidate he would be. What if be did that in a presidential debate? It would hurt
He did well to learn his lesson now. I would bet that he never does that again during an important speech or debate.
but if he doesn't have the wherewithall to prevent something liek that, a different type of gaffe could occur that no learning will help prevent
Everyone has bad moments. It could happen, but I would not assume that it will. He will be heavily coached if he is nominated.
That is the real problem.
I think it's funny that people are still watching individual polls, regardless.
The same thing was said about Rassmussen a few years ago, but those on the left continued to badger him as being on the take by the GOP and discounted his polling.
I am just pointing out that an openly partisan polling group (from either side) is not the best source.
PPP did a good job this time around, but they have been wildly off in other years/races. Best to wait for Gallup, Quinnipiac, or other such outfits that are clearly non-partisan before we get all hot and bothered.
Gallup was pretty off, per the chart I posted above. Polls this early are all noise anyway. And Rasmussen weighted his poll this year so that his sample wasn't 'skewed'. I argued with some on here that it was stupid before the election. And got a load of grief for it. My broad defense of the polling was one of my better moments on here.
