Democrats paid PPP to skew this for them. Enough said.

Legitimately cannot tel if you're being serious

This poll was paid for by a pro-union group, it's not normal PPP. That makes it an internal poll, which is basically 100% guranteed to be at least slightly skewed toward what the client wants to see. If the client sees what they want, they are more likely to hire the pollster again, so the pollster skews the poll sample or doesn't push undecideds, or both, to satisfy the client.

And it's difficult to get clients as a pollster if you can't show examples of your work. Obviously PPP has its array of "regular" polls, which is why its internals are less bad than other internals. But most internal pollsters do little or no "regular" polling, so their primary method of getting examples to show future clients is skewing the polls for their current cilents.
