Interesting that they are so concerned about transparency when it comes to
polling, because they think Jim Matheson's polling had some impact in his
election, but they are unable to pass any meaningful legislation regarding
ethics for themselves. Transparency I guess is in the eye of the beholder.
Legitimate polls being hurt? LOL!If a poll is legitimate for reason
then why is there any doubt that a legitimate poll could be an illegal poll? If
a poll by any means and for any means is being conducted then the laws would
apply to both equally. How can there be a distinction of legal or illegal poll
if it doesn't apply to all polls? Creating exceptions is non productive
legislation to allow continued means and methods by renaming to work around the
law.I hope that the $100 fine was a misprint and meant to mean for
every call or incident of contact by a persons taking a poll. When a pollster
gets paid millions of dollars to conduct a poll, the fine of $100 dollar's
is a nuisance fine to them they will pay with contempt.
