Poll bias or CBS document?

I know this is old news. It's from Sept. 2. I just found it in the clipping service. Apparently:
A new Presidential Dog Poll, sponsored by the American Kennel Club, finds that dog owners likely to vote in the 2004 presidential election prefer a German shepherd serve as the First Dog over a Scottish terrier.
But, here's where a clear case of bias comes in:

Those polled were not told that U.S. Sen. John Kerry, the Democratic nominee, owns a German shepherd, and President Bush, the Republican nominee, owns a Scottish terrier.
It's possible the results just came out of the CBS Microsoft Word Forger. I'll check with Dan Rather and see if he thinks these are authentic.
