Public Policy Polling (PPP) is an American Democratic Party-affiliated polling firm based in Raleigh, North Carolina. PPP was founded in 2001 by businessman and Democratic pollster Dean Debnam, the firm's current president and chief executive officer. The company's surveys use Interactive Voice Response (IVR), an automated questionnaire used by other polling firms such as SurveyUSA and Rasmussen Reports.

PPP's polls have been described as very accurate in the 2008 U.S. presidential election by The Wall Street Journal and Mark Blumenthal, senior polling editor of the Huffington Post and the founding editor of , among others. Although being affiliated with the Democratic Party, PPP has not exhibited a Democratic bias in its polling results; according to Nate Silver of, PPP actually had a small pro-Republican bias in its 2010 polling results.
