Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- One side in the U.S. Senate race is calling out poll results released by Forum Communications.

The poll shows U.S. Representative Rick Berg leading Democrat Heidi Heitkamp by 10 points. Heitkamps campaign manager says it's an unreliable poll from a polling firm that has shown in the past it doesn't follow professional polling standards.

The poll was done by Essman Research out of Des Moines, Iowa. One expert we talked to says the polling methodology appears fair.

Another however says more cell phone users should have been polled. The poll used 25-percent from cell phones.
