Heads up 3rd District DUers, really nasty push poll being used by Dean Phillips' opponent

I got the call late yesterday afternoon as did a couple other people in my Senate District.

Not sure if it's put out by his opponent, the Republicans or some other group supporting Kendall Qualls. They don't try to hide what they're doing though I have to wonder if the average, not that involved, voter knows a push poll when they hear one.

I was asked questions like
"Would you support Dean Phillips if you knew he owns 3 luxury cars?"
"Would you support Dean Phillips if you knew his company marketed candy flavored vodka to underage people?"
"Did you know Dean Phillips never served in the military?"
"Would you support Dean Phillips if you knew he voted with Democratic Socialists AOC & Ilhan Omar 90% of the time?"
"Would you support Dean Phillips if you knew he voted with Nancy Pelosi and the radical lefts Democrats?"

and on, and on. I expected them to ask me if I'd support Dean if I knew he bit the heads off live bats on the House floor.

Naturally I answered "Yes" each time & picked "strongly support" as part 2 of the question.

1. Last time around I remember

the thinly veiled anti-Semitic tropes they were flinging at him.

2. That was Eric Paulsen for you

When he ran against Ashwin Madea he darkened Ashwin's skin in his ads.

There were no questions alluding to Dean's religion this time but there were several questions referring to his wealth

They did ask if Qualls being Black would make "your neighbors" less apt to support him. I thought that was a weird question.

3. If Phillips bit the heads off bats on the House floor that would be totally badass.

I wouldn't approve, but if I lived in his district I'd vote for him anyway, since GOPers would bite the heads off live babies if Trump told them to.
