Political push poll hard to decipher

Like letter writer Laurie Biethan, I too have received the political push poll from Mountain West however I got the impression it was paid for by the Cyrus Habib and/or a Democratic group.

The question asked “if true” would you more or less inclined to vote for the candidate.

I thought there were more negative questions concerning Hank Myers than for Cyrus Hybib. The big assertions to both candidates out of aproximately 25 questions are “Myers has not paid his taxes” and “Hybib campaign is paid for by out of state funding”.

I am not sure how this gets to the “race card” being played.

The poll went on way too long and based on the large amount of questions you could make anything you want out of the poll.
