[Home]PushPolling

A poll is a survey of preference or opinion. It ostensibly is diagnostic in nature only.

A push poll, on the other hand, has the surface appearance of a regular poll, but is designed to frame the debate in a certain way: Questions may be worded to make some preferences seem undesirable or objectionable, or to make some preferences seem more attractive. Some options or preferences might be deliberately excluded.

This is one reason why VotingIsEvil.

Contrast with TrialBalloon.
