I have defended PPP on here

I resist openly attacking a respected polling firm when posting here (though I love to shred in the comments).

But hackery has devolved into quackery.

From the PPP twitter:
"Boxer and Brown are winning more Republicans than Fiorina and Whitman are Democrats!"

Just a recap from pollsters who say otherwise:

Greenberg Quinlan Rosner disagrees (this the one showing Boxer up 8 ).

Survey USA AND Reuters show the two trading exact % (which translates better for Fiorina as there are more Democrats than Republicans here).

Wilson Research says baloney.

Only PPIC shows more Republicans voting Boxer than the opposite, and thats by a margin of...1.

I will blend bacon and drink it, raw, if Jensen's Boxer-Fiorina poll comes within 2 points of the actual result. Whitman has been sliding for a while, but Fiorina has avoided the same negative trendline with other pollsters.

Just a warning to ignore the hackery that will hit with the poll release and to keep fighting to GOTV here in California. If polls showing the Democrats zooming do anything this year, it should be to discourage Democrats unhappy with either choice from voting- and thereby allowing Republicans, already excited with the opportunity to finally dump Ma'am, to close with a surprise.

I am sure the blogosphere will have it shredded within 30 minutes of his posting when it is released (much like the hacked West Virginia poll using more Democrats than what showed up in 2008 ), but I think the shredding needs to start at the moment shenanigans start, and Jensen was kind enough to twitter that for us.
