WRONG PARTY TO PLAY FOR THE PITY VOTE:

Did Mitt Romney Push Poll Himself? (Mark Hemingway, 11/19/07, National Review)

Shortly after reports of Romney being targeted in a push poll emerged, the firm making the calls was identified as Western Wats, which is based in Utah and has a number of Romney campaign contributors on the payroll. Western Wats was founded by Ron Lindorf who has ties to the business school at the Mormon-owned Brigham Young University, Romney’s alma mater (Lindorf has since divested himself from the company). Lindorf’s brother Paul and his wife Teena are avid supporters of Romney (Paul is a former employee of Western Wats who retired five years ago; Paul and Teena claim not to know Romney or have a vested interest in his campaign).

Evidence collected from Internet bulletin boards dedicated to tracking telemarketers and nuisance phone calls suggests that Western Wats may be tied directly to the Romney campaign.

If verified, Romney is done and McCain immediately becomes the front-runner.

Then again, this smells like something St.Hillary!'s Machine would know all about well ahead of time. The hiring of a supposed Romney supporter is a nice touch, too.
