Left-wing polling firm hid Giron's dismal polling numbers before Colorado recall

Who needs a good public reputation, anyway? Not left-wing Public Policy Polling, it seems, who buried their weekend poll accurately predicting just how bad Colorado State Senator Angela Giron was going to be beaten in her recall election:


On Wednesday, the left-leaning polling firm released results from a poll it took over the weekend, which showed Giron being recalled 54 percent to 42 percent, a 12-point spread that matched actual results.

ESPN’s Nate Silver ripped PPP over their lack of ethics, and deservedly so.

Keep that propensity towards dishonesty in mind the next time gun control groups—or a serially dishonest President—cites polling figures claiming “ninety-percent” of something that simply isn’t true.
