Action: Write Real Clear politics

When Obama got a nice bounce from the Democratic convention, Real Clear Politics did not include both the Gallup tracking poll and the USA Today/Gallup poll in their poll average. Why? Because the USA Today/Gallup poll included the very same poll data. They said that their policy was not to do so.
But now with the post-Republican convention bounce, they are using both.
Please write them (courteously) and ask them why they are employing a double standard:
