An Open Letter to Strategic Vision polling regarding the Georgia Senate race

After reading the press release from Strategic Vision regarding its most recent poll of the Georgia Senate race, a poll that did not include Allen Buckley, I sent the following email to Ms. Laura Ward, SV's listed press contact:

Ms. Wood

I just read you firm's release of its most recent polling regarding the Georgia Senate race.

I cannot help but wonder why Libertarian candidate Allen Buckley has never been included in any of your questions.

Mr. Buckley scored 3.6% in his last state-wide run for office, and with Georgia being Bob Barr's home state I would think he stands a good chance at significantly increasing that.

Moreover, he has been receiving significant media attention from outlets like the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and the Macon Telegraph.

Finally, I would note that given his positioning of himself as the "True conservative" in the race, it would be critical to Democratic chances for successfully challenging Senator Chambliss to know just how well Buckley was doing, and whether he was taking votes primarily from Republicans, Democrats, or Independents.

I would appreciate your consideration of this matter in future polls.

As usual, I'll let you know if I get a response.
