Prantha Trivedi:

Excuse me if I’m skeptical since the leader of the Opinion Research company, Vinod Gupta, is a major donor and fundraiser to the Clinton campaigns and foundations, spent time in the Lincoln Bedroom during the Clinton Administration, goes on vacation with the Clintons, built a “Bill Clinton Science and Technology Center” and a “Hillary Rodham Clinton Mass Communication Center” in India, gave the Clintons $3 million in consulting contracts, and the Clintons formerly held stock options in his company.

Searching for this pollster’s contributions to Hillary in the FEC reports doesn’t give me much more confidence in this poll.

Donations to Hillary Clinton from the CEO of the Opinion Research/InfoUSA Company

July 1999: $1000 to Hillary Rodham Clinton for U.S. Senate

August 1999: $1000 to Hillary Rodham Clinton for U.S. Senate

March 2005: $4200 to Friends of Hillary

December 2006: $2000 to Friends of Hillary

Feburary 2007: $1000 to Hillary Rodham Clinton for President

April $2007: $3600 to Hillary Rodham Clinton for President

If all that wasn’t enough, this pollster has already declared about Hillary, “She will be the next President.”

I am very disappointed in CNN, MSNBC and FOX for not looking at the people's choice who is RON Paul. I do not consider the major media as being representative of the peoples interest, rather the major media is totally a disservice to we the people.
