    It insists, without substantiation:

    In other words, of the 701 people polled, 41.6% were conservative, 32.5% were moderate and only 20.7% were liberal. And, not only was the deck absurdly over-stacked with conservatives, they were realllllllly motivated conservative voters.

    And then says:

    Even though more people self-identify in Wisconsin as liberals, if we properly weight the results in the ball park of where they should be so that liberals and conservatives are represented each with 30% and moderates are represented with 40% the results of the poll would be alot closer to other polling in the state.

    There are very few places where more people ID as liberals than conservatives, and Wisconsin isn't one of them. In 2008, it was 31C, 23L. The sample may be somewhat too conservative, but they definitely shouldn't be equal.
