Report Suggests Firm Made Up Polling Results

DailyKos has published a report by "three statistics wizards showing, quite convincingly, that the weekly Research 2000 State of the Nation poll we ran the past year and a half was likely bunk."

"While the investigation didn't look at all of Research 2000 polling conducted for us, fact is I no longer have any confidence in any of it, and neither should anyone else. I ask that all poll tracking sites remove any Research 2000 polls commissioned by us from their databases. I hereby renounce any post we've written based exclusively on Research 2000 polling."

DailyKos will be filing suit against the polling firm "within the next day or two."

Update: Research 2000 President Del Ali to TPM: "I will tell you unequivocally that we conducted EVERY poll properly for the Daily Kos."
