Is Elizabeth Roberts Using Push-Polling?
RI Law Journal has a firsthand report on what sounds like a push-poll commissioned by the Elizabeth Roberts campaign for Lieutenant Governor.
Jon Pincince (primary contributor to RILJ) told a pollster who had called him that he’d likely be voting for Robert Healey. Here’s what happened next…
Then I was asked for whom I would vote if Healey were not running (to which I answered neither, for no particular reason), and I was then bombarded with negative statements about [Reginald Centracchio] and asked whether those statements would change my mind.Apparently Ms. Roberts campaign staff doesn’t think that their candidate has any positive accomplishments or interesting ideas that will sway undecided voters. If her own campaign staff is unimpressed by her platform, then why should you be?
