Republicans send out a fun push poll on Kentucky races

Tom Whalen from Kenton County received this phone call “survey” last night, was able to record a good portion of it, and sent it our way:

Also, Steve Beshear once threw a stick of dynamite into a bus of full of schoolchildren, and David Williams is a World War II vet that killed Adolph Hitler. Does this information make you more likely to vote for Steve Beshear or David Williams?

Yeah… so don’t be surprised if you see a certain campaign release a certain “internal poll” showing a certain candidate jumping back into contention, as opposed to being 31 percent behind.

American Democracy: still awesome.

    Ahhhh, so it was David Williams that gave syphilis to Hitler. I always wondered who did that.

    I’m surprised the Republican RoboPushPoll didn’t blame Governor Beshear for the murder of Amanda Ross.

  6. [...] The worst news in this poll for Republicans is the trouncing of Todd P’Pool by Jack Conway, the margin of which is kind of shocking, and I’m still a bit skeptical. Considering Conway has more money to spend over the next three weeks, such a deficit would be virtually impossible to overcome. In the cn|2 write up, the P’Pool and Comer campaigns laugh at their numbers and mock them, saying their internal polls show a tight race and cn|2’s polling can’t be trusted. But if they really did show a different story, you’d think they would release them, right? Unless they want Democrats to be overconfident and not know what hit them on Nov. 8. Plus, if their internals really did show closer races, one might wonder what kind of “poll” that was (AHEM). [...]
