Poll appears to have predetermined conclusion

I think it was very disingenuous of Senator Micciche to use a "push poll" to gauge his constituents' opinion regarding the Legislature's self-induced fiscal crisis.

Push polls are used to obtain a predetermined conclusion and therefore the results are not an accurate method for determining public policy. The good Senator should know this.
