    that are pretty much feeding people GOP talking points. E.g. on what to do about Medicare they offer options such as "Allowing seniors to choose among drug coverage plans that will have to compete for their business on the basis of cost and quality" versus "The new government panel of unelected bureaucrats who will cut Medicare payments to doctors and hospitals."

    It's not clear what the question order was on this one but for their last OH and FL polls they asked about 20 questions as loaded as the one above BEFORE they put the horserace question. That is a complete no-no in polling.

    While there are some "(R)" pollsters who do a serious job this bunch of hucksters is not among them.
