This is obviously not going to be of interesting to my burgeoning national audience (which is a good thing, as maybe this, combined with my lack of posts the last couple of days, will make those folks go away), but I was wondering whether any of you in the Columbia area have been subjected to a rather lengthy phone poll regarding city electoral politics. Have you?
A colleague’s wife received such a call last week, and was asked a whole lot of questions (thereby implying the expenditure of vast sums) about prospective candidates for city office. One of the scenarios: Mayor Bob vs. Daniel Rickenmann.
It was the sort of poll you don’t usually get during a by-election in such a local political sphere. It makes you wonder whose it was. It makes you wonder who paid for it. It particularly makes you wonder in light of this story this morning.
Anyone have any intel on this, or observations to relate?
