Might want to start sanding Poplar with 120 or 150 grit sandpaper and finish with 180 grit before applying paint.

Would not think about sanding Poplar with 80 or 100 grit sandpaper unless surface really rough or lot of tool marks. Poplar is a hardwood, but very soft you can really create more work for yourself sanding with too coarse grit sandpaper.
