I got a call last night from a national firm that was conducting a poll on the Hayhurst vs Souder campaign.
I was surprised. I never seem to get these calls.
The company was "Call Research."
This poll actually helps illustrate why NO ONE should trust polling data.
One of the first questions was the "Is America on the right track or wrong track question." I of course answered that is was strongly on the wrong track. Democrats will take this answer to mean I am a Democrat. I am not. I think we are on the wrong track as long as our elected officials want to expand the size and reach of Government.
I was asked who I voted for in 2004 for President. I was told my choices were Kerry or Bush. I told her I did not vote either of those two, I voted Libertarian.
Then we talked about my opinion of Hayhurst and Souder:
I told her I strongly disagreed with BOTH Souder and Hayhurst.
Then I was asked who I would vote for and I told her Hayhurst...
I have NO DOUBT that this poll was constructed by Democrats, I believe this based on the way the questions were asked.
I think this means it is likely that a large Democratic organization is trying to collect data to see if it is worth backing Hayhurst.
I irritates me that these firms NEVER include third parties. They act like people only have two choices, luckily we have more then two choices.
