Kellyanne Conway — president and CEO of the polling company, inc, who has provided polling services to the It’s Our Net Coalition — analyzed that so-called bipartisan poll that came out a few weeks ago. Without making a big deal about it, we thought it would be instructive for her thoughts to be made available.

Kellyanne concluded:

It is legitimate for pollsters to test messages on behalf of a client in private surveys that will not become part of the public record. When those figures are publicly released absent context and explanation, including to United States Senators who are charged with deciding whether, when and how to act on legislation, there is a danger that the public’s will could be misconstrued. Surveys should reflect public opinion, not manipulate it.
