Stephens Media Arkansas News Bureau Poll

I just wonder where Opinion Research Associates took this poll. One wonders if they actually called anyone. They just made up some numbers and billed Stephens Media for it.
Clint Reed, executive director of the Republican Party of Arkansas, was blunter, calling the poll "laughable" and "lacking credibility."

Gosh, he was being nice. I'd call this a big load of crap! However, Stephens Media may have decided to make lemonade out of a lemon. They may have realized that the poll was worthless, but they paid for it, so why not throw up a provocative headline "Poll shows Beebe Leading Hutchinson by 21 Points". The resulting brouhaha gets them publicity, albeit, bad.

Well I guess Stephens Media was right, at least from the actual election results that I saw.
