As many of you know by now, it has been verified that the Kerry campaign is engaging in push polling against Dean. Among other things, he is currently being called an enviornmental racist (and possibly a wife beater) during these push polls. This sort of polling is designed to drive up Dean's negatives in key primary states such as Iowa and New Hampshire.
The problem with this sort of polling is that it will also drive up Dean's negatives in key swing states, such as Iowa and New Hampshire, in the general election. This is the sort of activity that could doom the Democratic nominee in November.
There is a very high chance John Kerry will not be the nominee. There is a much higher chance that one of Clark, Dean and Edwards will be the nominee. If Clark and Edwards people out there don't mind that Dean is the subject of these attacks, and that its okay just as long as its not your guy, don't fool yourself. If Dean falls by the wayside, your guy will be next.
Call Kerry HQ at 202-548-6800 and tell them you strongly disapprove of this sort of push polling. Tell them that it could doom Democratic chances against Bush in November, and that it is lowering your personal ability to be active on Kerry's behalf should he be the nominee.
If we call them enough, this will become a major news story. You better believe the push polling will stop then, and that Dem chances of success against Bush will increase.
