    It could well be intentional.. But the problem could also just be an error in screening caused by marquette not understanding the situation in wisconsin.
    To disqualify anybody who aided the recall is a serious mistake. You can't do that in an environment where three quarters of the people who will vote against walker collected at least their own signature.
    The failing of the poll is probably that it wasn't designed for a recall election.
    And then, it's also possible that other mistakes were made.
    It doesn't necessarily follow that it was intentional.

      was intentional. I think that if there is an error, it is in assuming that the turnout will be a typical turnout for a special election, and I agree with you.
