Introducing the New Daily Kos/Research 2000 Daily Tracking Poll

The Daily Kos, seemingly not happy about John McCain’s bounce in independent, non-partisan polls such as Gallup, Hotline, Rasmussen, etc., has decided to partner with the polling firm Research 2000 to conduct a daily tracking poll to measure voter sentiment on a daily basis.

Sounds independent and unbiased enough to me!
