Push Polling Begins

Apparently, someone has commissioned a push poll for Iowa and New Hampshire, attacking Mitt Romney for his Mormon faith.  Camps Giuliani and McCain have both denied involvement in no uncertain ways.  No one apparently has thought to ask the Thompson campaign.  Weirder yet, the calls seem to originate from Utah, of call places, and the company to whom the calls have been traced back denies being involved in any “polling” operation, legitimate or otherwise, in either state; an executive of that company has made substantial donations to Romney’s campaign.  Some have suggested that Romney commissioned the poll himself to garner sympathy, but I have a hard time believing that, too.  The truth will out eventually, and whoever is behind it will deserve very significant egg on his face.
