I got a call yesterday from Sun Surveys with what turned out to probably be a push poll for Thomas O'Reilly in the governor's race.
It took 15 to 20 minutes, and asked whether you thought MA was going in the right direction,
and what you thought of different aspects of how Tom Reilly was taking charge of the BIG DIG problem.
I spoke with the poll taker a soon to be college kid from Florida who was calling from Miami. He said he had been interested in politics until he started this job and started speaking to people. Nice kid. He said he couldn't tell who was paying for the poll. It will be interesting to see if this is published or if Reilly uses it for his own internal information.
(it could have obliquely been a gabrieli poll who was just looking on how to hammer Reilly, but with Reilly in 3rd right now that doesn't seem to make much sense. The poll hardly mentioned Patrick at all, which was odd as he is the current poll leader)
