Heard back from Politifact. They stand by the brain-pretzel logic about supporting a choice of an option vs. supporting the option. Fine, whatever. The thing that really struck me is they said they were aware of the SurveyUSA poll and were simply ignoring it because it was funded by MoveOn. Umm… ok? And? Is there any question about the methodology? Is the language suspect? No, none of those things. But see MoveOn paid for a perfectly valid poll from a respected outfit and we don’t like MoveOn, so there you go: The poll never happened and anyone who makes claims based on it is “False.” Wow did my opinion of them just plummet.
