Polling the Polls
We want you to know that we at the Pioneer Press have such respect for the Do Not Call List that we won't even think of calling people at random across St. Paul to see if they've been called by some pollster prying into their feelings about the mayoral race.
But that doesn't stop YOU from giving us a jingle.
Please. Please. For the LOVE OF ALL THAT IS GOOD IN THE WORLD, take that opportunity to push the "record" button on your answering machine when you pick up the phone and find a political pollster on the other end. Take notes. Mental ones even.
And when you hang up, get right back on to the phone to the Scoop. Give us a call at 651-292-1159 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Play back those poll questions for us. Relate to us the many inquiries they had for you. Vent your outrage at the political conclusions they're trying to get you to draw.
This is your chance to fight back! Drag those anonymous speed-dialing busybodies out of the boiler rooms they're hiding in and into the bright daylight of Democracy, Truth and the American Way!
