I thought it was a sham of a poll from the first time I saw the internals in 2008, and I was pretty open in that criticism too with Markos. It reminded me of Rasmussen's first attempt, with Portrait of America iirc, in 2000 (huger fail). In fact, there's a real funny, in hindsight, back and forth between us over Research 2000 if you want to read it, from November 2008:
markos: Cooking the polls
jerome: The most accurate pollsters
I should probably shut up, lest I get dragged into this mess like Nate Silver with a cease and decist email, but seriously, was it ever a doubt that these poll numbers by R2K were catered for the crowd? Not to me anyway. Cooked too now? What a shocker.
