Running Dirty Campaigns:
COLUMBIA – At a press
conference held on September 28th at Republican Party headquarters,
South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Henry McMaster called on
Democrats to stop using unethical “push polls” to mislead voters in
legislative races across South Carolina.
tactics scream of desperation,” Chairman McMaster said. “Such
political dirty tricks are unethical and have been condemned by numerous
professional organizations, political watchdog groups, and elected
officials. They twist the legitimate practice of polling into a
slanderous assault on political opponents. I call on South Carolina
Democrats to cease this practice immediately and denounce it
South Carolina voters
from across the state joined Chairman McMaster at the press conference
and spoke of receiving misleading and slanderous “push polling”
calls recently from Democrats. “Push polls” have been used against
the following Republican candidates: Sen. André Bauer, Sen. John
Courson, Sen. Larry Grooms, Sen. Hugh Leatherman, Rep. Tracey Edge, Rep.
Ron Fleming, Rep. Becky Martin, Rep. Rick Quinn, Rep. Edie Rodgers, Alan
Clemmons, Gary Prince, Lanneau Siegling, Danny Verdin, and Bryan White.
According to the American Association for Public Opinion Research, “a ‘push poll’ is a telemarketing technique in which telephone calls are used to canvass potential voters, feeding them false or misleading ‘information’ about a candidate under the pretense of taking a poll to see how this ‘information’ affects voter preferences. In fact, the intent is not to measure public opinion but to manipulate it – to ‘push’ voters away from one candidate and toward the opposing candidate. Such polls defame selected candidates by spreading false or misleading information about them. The intent is to disseminate campaign propaganda under the guise of conducting a legitimate public opinion poll.”
We now have reports of such tactics being used against the re-election campaign of our County's State Senator, Larry Grooms. YOU DESERVE BETTER - YOU DESERVE THE TRUTH AND AN END TO CAMPAIGN "DIRTY TRICKS".
