Missed your earlier e-mail, but I checked after getting this one and see that you did send it.
Bob Gunnell is a respected and admired political consultant who understands his role as an analyst is separate from any campaign contribution he has made.
His analysis of the Senate poll is a reflection of decades of experience and professionalism. I sought his opinion based on his reputation, talent and frankly, because he understands how to boil down campaign nuances into concise and insightful statements.
Regarding his analysis Wednesday, you will notice that several other analyses have reached very similar conclusions as to the Conway's ascent in the poll.
Finally, by virtue of interviewing strategists who have a real world knowledge and connections to campaigns, it is understood that these people are expressing opinions.
It is my job to represent those opinions in a balanced way, and I believe that I have done that. Granted, every story is usually met by grumbling from one campaign or another, but that comes with the territory.
