Did 3 News try to ratf*ck Winston?

There is something very dodgy about the poll 3 News have run on Northland.

They have asked a question that makes anyone who knows anything about polling wonder if they are push polling trying to get one particular outcome in Northland.

Push polling is a very dodgy practice used by people trying to alter the results of elections.?Essentially it is a tool to ratf*ck your opponent.

TV 3?s version of the push poll is as follows: ??

However, asked if they trusted Mr Peters, 48 per cent said no while 43 per cent said they did. Nine per cent did not know.

So what they are trying to do is get the 500 people they called to do is start thinking that Winston is untrustworthy.

If you get someone to agree Winston is untrustworthy you know there is a better than average chance that they will then say they won?t vote for Winston.

TV 3 need a good kick in the arse for this poll.

It is a disgrace.
