If you're going to throw the caution flag for PPP's alleged political bias, you should also note that in 2012, they were one of the most accurate polling outfits.

Posted on 10/16/13 at 11:10 am in response to Will Minnesota's House Republicans support a budget deal?

Fewer than 40 GOPers might vote for the Senate bill? And it was also being said that fewer than 50 GOPers were pushing the Cruz position in the House.
