I just took a call off my desk phone in which a recorded voice of some nice man invited me to field a few questions. The survey was comprised of nine questions focused on Sen. Blanche Lincoln, potential GOP challengers Gilbert Baker and Tim Griffin, some other Arkansas Democratic officials, and, believe it or not, Rush Limbaugh. All the questions are listed at the jump.
Then there were the usual demographic questions about race, gender, etc. In case you were wondering, I’m a 63-year-old black Democratic woman.
I was taking notes quickly, so the transcriptions won’t be 100 percent precise, but this gets at the substance of the questions. I don’t recall hearing the nice man say who was running this survey — I don’t believe he said.
But I assume, since those Rush Limbaugh questions are in there, it’s probably one of those thoroughly inept Washington D.C. organizations like the Democratic National Committee or the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. I don’t think the Lincoln campaign people would waste a perfectly good question on such a perfectly asinine matter.
Full list of survey questions, more or less accurately recorded by me:
Do you approve or disapprove of President Barack Obama’s job performance?
Do you approve or disapprove of Sen. Blanche Lincoln’s job performance?
Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of Arkansas Sen. Gilbert Baker?
Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of former U.S. Attorney Tim Griffin?
If the 2010 U.S. Senate race were between Gilbert Baker and Blanche Lincoln, who would you vote for?
If the 2010 U.S. Senate race were between Tim Griffin and Blanche Lincoln, who would you vote for?
Do you approve or disapprove of Gov. Mike Beebe’s job performance?
Do you approve or disapprove of Sen. Mark Pryor’s job performance?
Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of Rush Limbaugh?
Do you think Rush Limbaugh is currently the leading voice for the Republican Party?
