Subject: push poll
>Thought you’d like to know, I was just push-polled just a few
>minutes ago. The company is Venture Data/Call Research, at 1126 N.
>Monroe, Spokane, WA 99201. They called pretending to be doing a
>legitimate poll, but then clearly starting push-polling when they
>said they would read statements about the candidates for governor
>and wanted to know how it affected my attitudes toward the
>candidates. The first statement for a derogatory remark about the
>incumbent governor regarding accusations of “pay to play” with
>campaign donations. I immediately asked to talk to the supervisor.
>She was very nice, but could not answer my question of who the
>client was and who was paying for the poll. According to my wife,
>that is illegal in the state of Wisconsin. BTW, the poll was titled,
>”Green WISW Tracks.” Mark Green is the Republican challenger for
>governor. Thought you might find this interesting.
