A new poll

by: corncam

Sun Nov 04, 2012 at 12:03:28 PM CST

I live in Johnson county (IA-02), and I just got a strange poll.  It was very short - they asked whether I plannned to vote, Obama vs. Romney, how I voted in 2008 (Obama vs McCain), and then came the surprise.  They asked how I viewed Colin Powell - very favorably, somewhat favorably, somewhat unfavorably, very unfavorably.  It's hard to believe that Powell still has national political aspirations, but I can't figure out who else would be asking that question.

Has anyone else gotten a poll like this?

haven't heard about it (0.00 / 0)
Thanks for mentioning it. Were those the only questions, or did they ask about other national figures?

Invite other Iowa political junkies to join us at Bleeding Heartland.

Powell was the only one (0.00 / 0)
They didn't ask about any other national figures (except the candidates).

is the powell ad (0.00 / 0)
running in IA? He cut an ad after endorsing Obama recently. Could be the Obama campaign focus-grouping whether it would be effective in IA ...

supposedly the ad is running in IA (0.00 / 0)
as a closing argument. This sounds like a quick poll to gauge effectiveness. Could switch to a different ad over the next two days if this one isn't working.
