In recent days we've been criticized by the chair of the Colorado Democratic Party, Michael Bennet's campaign manager, Blanche Lincoln, and the North Carolina Republican Party sent out a press release touting our results.
The truth is it's been happening because we're doing just what we've always done- releasing numbers on key things around the country whether they're good for Democrats or not. It just happened that last year almost all of the news was good for Democrats. Most of it has been so far in 2009 as well, but there has been some bad news and now we're getting it from our own side just like we always have from the Republicans.
That's just part of the business. There are very few folks out there who truly judge polls and pollsters on their merit or track record- whether a poll 'sucks' or not pretty much depends on whether you like the results. It gets a little annoying some times but if you can't deal with it, polling probably isn't the right profession for you.
