Viewpoint: 'Push poll' calls - We deserve better
I recently received a call which pretended to be a legitimate political survey. I usually find a reason to hang up on such callers -- then complain that nobody ever cares about my opinion -- so I decided to participate.
It quickly became apparent that it was what is called a "push poll," viciously targeting one of our local state legislators who is running for re-election.
I am not going to name names, but will refer to the candidates as "Incumbent" and "Challenger."
