    Hi folks – I am Joshua Ulibarri, Barbara Favola’s pollster. I want to set the record straight, so the candidates can move on. The Favola campaign conducted a standard, 10-minute tracking poll to contact 400 people. The final ballot question in the poll had an error in it.  When we discovered the error, we immediately stopped calling and corrected the question. It was my mistake, not the campaign’s. This was not Barbara Favola’s mistake, she didn’t approve it. It was not intentional. It was not a push poll. A push poll is designed to reach thousands of voters, closer to an election, and to make them change their actual vote.  This survey was designed to gain information for the campaign, not to change respondents’ minds. I apologize for this mistake and the confusion and I take full responsibility.

      This is not particularly credible, you were testing out negative messages, with a disclaimer that some might be exaggerated or distorted. Do you do that if your intentions are 100% pure?

      And you need to send a formal apology to Jaime Areizaga-Soto and to the Democratic Latinos of Virginia.

      In fact, you need to call back EVERY SINGLE HOUSE YOU GAVE WRONG INFORMATION TO, EXPLAIN THE MISTAKE AND MAKE SURE THEY KNOW THAT JAIME IS A GOOD DEMOCRAT.



      THEN AND ONLY THEN SHOULD ANOTHER DEMOCRAT USE YOU FOR OTHER POLLING.
