  •  Couldn't it just be a corrupt poll? (11+ / 0-)

    I got one of those back in 2006 when I was called and asked "Do you think Ohio would benefit from a strong black governor?" And knowing what the game was I said, "Only if it's not Ken Blackwell." It was clearly a corrupt poll from the Blackwell campaign. I live in Oh-11, the blackest district in Ohio (I am not black though). They were clearly trying out their "Help us make history; elect Ohio's first black governor" message. Problem on election day was most black voters knew what Blackwell stood for — so they voted for Ted Strickland.

      would have responded had you asked, "What exactly is your definition of 'strong'?"
