Bleeding Heartland: Republican message testing in Johnson County
Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland
At 4:00PM on Saturday, I got a call from a "polling firm". It began innocously emough by asking which Dem I planned to caucus for, and I said Dodd, but then the real purpose became clear. They asked me if any of the following information would change my opinion about these three "Democrat" candidates: Clinton - she's a flip-flopper, who used to opposed ethanol, but now she supports it. Obama - voted present seven times on reproductive rights bills in the Illinois State Senate. Edwards - he's a liberal trial lawyer who wants to bring troops home from Iraq. I replied that no, their opinions didn't bother me at all. So, has anyone else gotten these calls? I live in Johnson county, and I wonder if they're going statewide.
