Mysterious anti-Hillary push-poll in Iowa

Somebody is testing negative messages about Hillary Clinton among Iowa Democrats. The practice, called "push polling," is usually a gimmick to spread negative information about an opponent under the guise of taking a poll.

Iowa Democrats used push-polling last year in an effort to help ex-congressman Bruce Braley defeat now-Senator Joni Ernst. Although the first response of many would be to blame the Republicans, would it be ridiculously obvious to suggest that, given both the audience and the fact that a Democratic polling firm is involved, it's probably a fellow Democrat who also wants to be president?

Interestingly, the article linked to above thinks that Hillary's own campaign might be responsible, presumably in order to test her vulnerability on the issues in question.
