Why doesn’t PPP ever ask about Obamacare?

Public Policy Polling, the prolific progressive automated telephone pollster, is notorious for all the off-beat questions they include in their statewide polls.

Do North Carolinians prefer Dunkin Donuts or Krispy Kreme?

Do Georgians have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of Honey Boo Boo?

What football team is most popular in Alaska?

No question is too silly or irrelevant to throw in the mix for PPP. Well no question save one: PPP never asks respondents what they think about Obamacare.

Take the Louisiana poll PPP released Tuesday. In addition to perfectly reasonable questions about President Obama’s approval rating, Gov. Bobby Jindal’s approval rating, and head-to-head match-ups for the 2014 Senate race, PPP also found the time to ask respondents:

Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of Les Miles?
Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of Mother Theresa?
Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of Duck Dynasty?

But not a single question about Obamacare.

Considering that both Democrats and Republicans have said they plan to make Obamacare the issue of 2014, you think PPP might want to know how voters in states with the most competitive Senate races felt about the issue.
