So, not satisfied that his negative, guilt-by-association, innuendo-ridden, gutter attacks (ITEM 3/15/12) against Congressman John Tierney orchestrated the desired public outrage, ‘has-been’ career politician Richard Tisei now releases a so-called internal campaign poll from GOP pollster John McLaughlin purportedly showing him 7 points ahead.
Increduously, the poll also shows Scotty ‘Etch-a-Sketch’ Brown up 24 points over Elizabeth Warren in the 6th Congressional District. But wait, look again; the poll is garbage!
“The GOP poll does have elevated Republican representation,” McLaughlin said in an e-mail to the Salem News.
The actual makeup of registered voters in the district is: 13% Republican, 30% Democrat, and 57% Independent. But the poll respondents were 22% R, 29% D, and 49% I.
According to the article even the Republican pollster admitted the fuzzy-math numbers were bogus.
The late conservative British Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli, said: “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.”
Voters, if he can’t even tell the truth about his own poll, why should we believe anything Richard Tisei says during this campaign?
