Okay, we all already knew Gravis was trash before this, but now they're redoing polls when they don't get the results they want? They really should be excluded from the poll database. All they do is screw up the averages. Even RCP doesn't include them.

Who is defending Gravis? I think everyone agrees it's junk. But IMO any non-fraudulent poll that isn't a campaign's internal should be entered into the database.

Is that a hard and fast rule though? For example, nobody was including those "ccadvertising" polls in the database, and they didn't seem to be fraudulent or an internal, just completely terrible and junky (just like Gravis).
