An agenda to push, a poll to manipulate

Kurt Hofmann shines the light on a polling firm that is open about creating a desired result set. According to their "study" commissioned by the Brady Campaign
“We found strong negative reactions to more guns in public - both carried openly and concealed - among many key voting blocks, and stronger-than expected concerns about some of these policies among gun owners,” said Celinda Lake, President of Lake Research Partners.
Except Kurt searched Lake Research Partners and found their "advocacy statement":
We have a strong client screen built upon our core values, working only for pro-choice candidates, clients with whom our labor friends can work, and good corporate citizens. Check our competitors’ client lists – you’ll find many cannot say the same.
Sounds like they have an agenda to push for.
