Rossi Pollster in Trouble

posted by on January 4 at 10:16 AM

Oregon pollster Bob Moore, who did work for Dino Rossi in 2004 (and also a recent poll that has Rossi neck and neck with Gov. Christine Gregoire) is being accused by the New Hampshire AG of doing negative “Push Polling” against Mitt Romney. Push polling—which mixes negative or positive campaign messaging into polls—is a serious No No. Moore’s polls allegedly knocked Romney for being Mormon.

The Oregonian has the story.

The Washington Public Disclosure Commission shows that Moore Information Inc. billed Rossi about $150,000 for polling work in 2004.

I got push polled by the Satterberg campaign last fall from Moore too. This is standard GOP stuff.

@1 - Dude, my wife did too!! Or I didn't know who was doing the polling, but it was for Satterberg.

I actually wrote to the Strangler at the time, but they didn't bite.

Why do the Rossi people hate our American values so? And I too got push polled by Satterburg, who doesn't realize all people who run trusts don't always think anti-capitalist Red Bushies are good choices.
