Well, the Gallup demise continues to be televised on their immutable slide to the abyss. First, they were mocked by the polling world as one of the least accurate prognosticators in the business.
Then, they were dropped by the USA/Today. And now they have been "DDTeed" by the very Obama Administration they tried to destroy. Check this:
The Gallup Organization has settled with the United States for $10.5 million amid allegations it inflated its federal contract prices and improperly negotiated a FEMA subcontract, the Justice Department announced Monday.http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/...
The Washington, D.C.-based polling and research firm violated the Fair Claims Act when it "overstated its true estimated labor hours" in proposals for U.S. Mint and State Department contracts, according to the U.S. complaint filed in November 2012. The complaint also alleges that Gallup "engaged in improper employment negotiations" with FEMA official Timothy Cannon to procure a subcontract at an inflated price, in violation of the Procurement Integrity Act.
What Gallup's next move?
I suggest taking over the polls for Fox News or the um "unskewed" people.
