    traceable to anyone.  That's the point.  The push polls by Bush against McCain in South Carolina, which spread the false rumor that he had an illegitamite black child were also untraceable to any particular campaign, but we all know who was behind them.

      but I question the LAT's diligence in not addressing the question.

      My central point remains: a push poll designed with a 20 minute script would be ridiculously expensive. Remember, unlike an actual poll with sample of 500 to 1000 people, a push poll hopes to call a large fraction of voters. In CA, we are talking tens of thousands of calls to be able to effect an election. For example, a well publicized illegal GOP robocall here on the Central Coast called every single registered Dem in the CD.

      Right now, it looks like there was exactly one call to a media figure. This raises more questions than it answers.
