  •  btw, i doubt it was a push poll (4+ / 0-)

    unless they're calling hundreds of thousands or millions of voters, it's not technically a push poll.  That's a really expensive, inefficient way of pushing a message.

    More likely they were testing their most effective talking points.

    •  Plus real push polls (1+ / 0-)

      aren't afraid to use names of real politicians running for office - next week.

      I've done a couple heavily slanted polls in my time and I also work with consumer research studies, so I can tell the difference between looking for information and pushing talking points.  The most heavily biased poll used right wing christianist talking points and the point of the poll seemed to be to see which talking points were most effective.  IOW - they asked about every presumed "hot button" topic - gays, god, guns, military and so on.
