Cold Called Corrected

The folks who posted are right, it wasn't exactly a push poll. It was probably being used by Reilly to gauge where he is in the race with likely voters, what they thought were the best aspects of Tom's leadership (so that they could push those characteristics), and what people wanted Tom Reilly to do.

I stand corrected. A push poll is more like the famous one that George Bush used against John McCain in South Carolina where automated calls asked the question: "If you were informed that John McCain had fathered an illegitimate vietnamese child, would you be more or less likely to vote for him?"

Of course, McCain has adopted a child (who I think is vietnamese) so it is possible that people could get confused. It is easy to see why McCain could get so angry at this despicable political act. Reilly's poll was nothing like that.
