A top union and a top liberal blog announced Tuesday that they'll team up to sponsor polling through the 2012 elections.
Daily Kos and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) said they will join forces to conduct issue and campaign polling in key states and races over the next two years.
The joint poll continues an effort by Daily Kos, a premiere liberal blog founded in 2002 by Markos Moulitsas, a contributor to The Hill, to take its advocacy a step further, and provide raw political information to readers, especially on races and issues of importance to that online community.
The SEIU/Daily Kos poll will use Public Policy Polling (PPP), a Democratic firm that uses automated polling rather than live, over-the-phone survey methods. Moulitsas contracted with PPP in June of 2010 after severing ties with Research 2000, which faced allegations of producing faulty poll results.

Polls are no longer a measure of anything. They’ve been coopted to SHAPE public opinion. That is all they are, a propaganda tool. People are simply afraid to be on the “wrong” side of things.
