McCain Trying to Smear Romney

I just got a telephone poll from the Research Data Design Group. First I must say, they included all of the top tier candidates.

  • Ron Paul
  • Rudy Giuliani
  • John McCain
  • Mitt Romney
  • Mike Huckabee
  • Fred Thompson

As we went through the questions, it became very obvious that this poll was put out by McCain’s group. It listed all of his accomplishments, his stance on pork barrel spending (yet he didn’t try to stop Hillary’s Woodstock Museum), etc. It was very evident that the questions they were asking were to give you a favorable opinion of McCain.

It was then followed by several questions concerning Mitt Romney. During the process, they actually repeated some of the questions. It attacked Romney on his change in position on abortion, taxes, marriage his lack of service in the military. Stated that he dodged Vietnam by getting a deferment from the Mormon Church to be a missionary in France and a second deferment to go to school. All the while touting McCain and his sons service.

In regards to the commonly not so recognized candidates in the Mainstream Media, some of there questions concerning issues in America definitely excluded any position by Ron Paul or Mike Huckabee.

I knew that with the results showing Romney’s gains, they would begin an attack. I did not think though that it would be so blatantly obvious in a telephone poll.

The McCain campaign as asked the New Hampshire attorney general to investigate this matter.  I have spoken to the campaign to make them aware that this smearing has spread  to SC.
