McCain Negative Push Polling Floridian’s

It was only a matter of time before the same tactics that Karl Rove used against John McCain back in 2000 in the Bush campaign would be dusted off and used against Barack Obama. Push polling is back and it has been reanimated to negatively influence Florida voters with out right lies and misdirection against Obama.

If you are wondering what a Push Poll is let me try to explain. You ask a question loaded with false accusations that you know the person on the other end of the phone will have to agree with your false statements against your political opponent. Over at No Blood for Hubris they have this to say on the topic…

It is deja vu all over again, again.

PT Key West resident Joelna Marcus received a phone call today. She was asked if she is Jewish, and she replied in the affirmative.

She was asked if she was religious.

She was then asked if her opinion of Barack Obama would change if she knew that Obama had given lots and lots of money to the PLO.

Isn’t it sort of ironic that the McCain campaign is backing off its negative costly television advertisements to go super negative in the call banks to the people of Florida? I’m sure that they are not limiting this practice to the nice people of Florida alone. What also intrigues me is what other questions they might be asking the people on the other end of the phone?

I’m sure there is a list of negative push poll questions to fit any religion, race, sex, sexual orientation and fear tactic that the Bush administration has been selling for years.

This really doesn't have anything to do with the subject of this post, but on your picture of Florida, there's a very large island-like object about 100 miles south of Apalachicola and about 150 miles west of Spring Hill that, on any other map or satellite view, simply does not exist.

What the heck is it?
