The wonderful Hesiod has this about push-polls in Wisconsin unveiled by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel and a pushee:
Unfortunately for them, they called the wrong guy: A democratic activist who jotted down their questions, and signed an affidavit confirming all of it.I canvassed in Wisconsin last weekend for Kerry with undecideds and slight leaners, and several mentioned how they had been for Kerry, but they were thinking about Bush again. I wonder now if they'd been pushed. Maybe our low-key canvass helped switch them back.
They also made a boo boo by trying that in Wisconsin, which has a state law requiring any polling firm to reveal who is paying for a poll if asked. Naturally, the gentleman asked the caller who was paying for the poll.
Get out there, people! Talk to the neighbors! Many undecided people just want to chat with a reasonable human being about this stuff and are turned off by the ads and slime. Just one person's mind changed per precinct will make a difference.
Regardless of what they say, I believe most are unhappy about Bush but feel they need to support him ONLY because they voted for him last time. We can help them thru this.
