Braley and supporters are "push polling" their lies about Ernst

Supporters of Bruce Braley are engaging in "push polling-" alleged "polls" which misrepresent the positions of a candidate's opponent and then ask "hypothetical" questions about whether knowing that would affect your vote. It's a none-too-sophisticated way of lying about Joni Ernst in much the same way Braley's TV ads do, and it's universally recognized as dirty politics.

But don't expect the media to say much about it. On the other hand, Joni's supporters need to shout "Foul!" just as loudly as they can. Braley, NextGen, and their ilk can't be allowed to get away with this.

ADDENDUM: Here is the White Pages entry for the out-of-state number from which the push-polling is being done.
