PUSH POLLS … It’s All About Manipulation
Don’t be annoyed by the calls … accept the call … LEARN and enjoy.
It is going to be an interesting and EDUCATIONAL primary election season coming up. We talk a lot about the “mental manipulation” that goes on in campaigns and politics generally … and you are going to see a lot of that over the next 208 days leading up to the June 11th, 2024, primary election.
Know their games … and don’t be mislead.
We received our first PUSH POLL call last night. It came from a “scam likely” local caller ID … it purported to be an “opinion poll” gauging support for DONALD TRUMP … but it quickly devolved into a lot of innuendo about a current elected official (a Congressman) and asked if that made us more or less likely to vote to re-elect him.
It was a classic political manipulation phone call … it was good practice to take the call and see firsthand what these political campaigns are all about (i.e., manipulating YOU) … and kinda fun to give them all sorts of whacky answers.
Don’t be annoyed by the calls … accept the call … LEARN and enjoy.
P.S. … and the irony of it all, the negative push poll was apparently conducted by a current elected official (and it now appears a challenger for this “higher office”) who complains constantly about the push polling and misleading negative mailers about him. Isn’t that ironic … and appears to confirm to many that he is just another politician. #LearnTheirTricks
There is a lot of information out there on the internet about PUSH POLLS, so google around if you want to study the topic extensively … as you should.
Wikipedia (HERE) tells us “A push poll is an interactive marketing technique, most commonly employed during political campaigning, in which an individual or organization attempts to manipulate or alter prospective voters’ views under the guise of conducting an opinion poll. Large numbers of voters are contacted with little effort made to collect and analyze voters’ response data. Instead, the push poll is a form of telemarketing-based propaganda and rumor mongering, masquerading as an opinion poll. Push polls may rely on innuendo, or information gleaned from opposition research on the political opponent of the interests behind the poll.”
We could tell last night the individual on the other end of the line had ZERO interest in what our answers were. His sole intent, as stated above, was to infer certain NEGATIVE traits of the current elected official … and ask how that made us “feel”.
[PERSONAL NOTE: Yes, all this is really sad for our Country once you understand exactly what these politicians (and their campaign consultants) are really trying to do. It explains how we got in this mess and shows we must do different if we want a different result. Laugher is sometimes how we have to get through it … “laughing on the outside, crying on the inside” … but the key is to figure all this out. Again, #LearnTheirTricks!!!]
And who pioneered push poling? According to Wikipedia … it was Richard Nixon. Isn’t that interesting as well.
Richard Nixon 1946 bid for US House: “This is a friend of yours, but I can’t tell you who I am. Did you know that Jerry Voorhis is a communist?” – at which point the caller hung up. Democrat Congressman Voorhis was not a communist, Nixon admitted to knowing he was not, but Nixon won.
George W. Bush 1994 bid for Governor of Texas: Voters were asked “whether they would be more or less likely to vote for Governor Ann Richards if they knew that lesbians dominated on her staff”. Wow!!! But, Bush won.
George W. Bush’s 2000 Primary Campaign for President: Voters in South Carolina reportedly were asked “Would you be more likely or less likely to vote for John McCain for president if you knew he had fathered an illegitimate black child?” It was a hypothetical question, which seemed like a suggestion, and appears to have had no substance. But, again, Bush won.
Were we happy with Nixon & Bush? Hmmm …
South Carolina’s famous political consultant, and former RNC Chairman, Lee Atwater (HERE), was also well known for using push-polling among his aggressive campaign tactics, though apologized for this in later life prior to his premature death from a cancerous brain tumor in 1991 at the age of 40.
So, ask yourself … do the ends justify the means? Do we want a politician that is willing to win at all cost? Is it the Christian thing to do … to manipulate voters? Are we OK with a candidate that is willing to “manipulate” the masses just to get elected? If the candidate is manipulating the masses … isn’t it likely he is also manipulating US?
If they will lie to GET the office, what will they do later to KEEP the office?
You decide …
Push Polls … #Desperation!!!
“If they will lie to get the office … what will they do later to keep the office?”

Good News Friday
“MAGA is on the raise … happy and victorious”!!!
Filmed September 13, 2023 (Wed.): GOOD NEWS FRIDAY with our good friend Lawrence Lantz is a hit … and it’s BACK today for another installment of “REAL” (as opposed to “Fake”) News Media from the grassroots front!!! Catch this grassroots summary of what is happening on the national political front as we go into the 2024 primary & election season.
We normally focus on local and state issues here at mySCGOP.news … a bottom up approach where YOU can really make a difference … but Lawrence gives us a “REAL” National News perspective of what is happening across America on the political front.
This weeks theme … “MAGA is on the raise … happy and victorious”!!!
Political Power vs Political Access
“You have to be politically FEARED to be politically RESPECTED.”
We have written about this before (HERE) … but it seems time for a reminder.
The #1 mistake we see new people and groups getting involved in the political process … the mistake we made ourselves (so not judging) … is people confuse “Power” with “Access”.
Access “feels” nice. You are listened to, you have a seat at the table, your phone calls are returned … they say nice things about you … but access really means you are “Never being perceived as a threat.” You may think you are friends with these people … but as President Truman said, if you want a friend in Washington, get a dog!
Power however is actually getting a politician to do what you want them to do … even if that is as simple as getting them to do what they said they would do on the campaign trial … or to simply follow the Republican Platform.
[NOTE: Another novice “misunderstanding” is thinking people / politicians / GOP officials would never just outright lie to your face. Trust no one!!! Verify everything!!! Good people don’t mind you asking questions. Know that these people lie constantly.]
MAKING THE HARD “ASK”: But wait until you ask a legislator to do something … the basics … like provide us with Medical Freedom, take PORN Books out of our libraries and schools … or God forbid you ask them to give us CLOSED PRIMARIES!!!
Ask them specifically what they will do, and all of a sudden you will learn there are 1,000 “excuses” … and you will know the difference between “political access” and “political power”.
We have seen it with SCHOOL CHOICE. Kids are needlessly suffering, it is an easy fix, and even the most far right school choice supporters cower at the prospect of crossing the “establishment”. They know the issue, yet they won’t speak up. That is when you know their true character.
Once you ask for something objectively right to do, but against the power structure … you will find out real quick your “access” means nothing. We did!!!
Your phone calls will no longer be returned. You will finally understand that politicians only care about getting elected or re-elected … and you will learn that unless you have the ability to REPLACE THEM, what you want for “We The People” really won’t matter if what you ask for is “hard”.
On the wall at HQ:
“You have to be politically FEARED to be politically RESPECTED.”
As we stated the last time we discussed this topic … if you don’t see it yet, you will, so just give it time and keep asking questions.
But if you are still excited to get a “selfie” with Lindsey Graham, you are probably reading the wrong daily emails and might want to unsubscribe. 😉
RUN FOR OFFICE
It is time friends!!! We are seeing PATRIOTS all over South Carolina starting to announce campaigns against incumbents.
285 days until the June 11th, 2024 Primary Election Day.
If you are running for office, thinking about it, or just have some questions … let us know at team@mySCGOP.com.
It is going to be an exciting 2024 election season!!!
SCGOP Rule 16(c) – BEWARE!!!
Don’t do it!
SCGOP Rule 16(c) is literally the very last Rule in the SCGOP Rule Book … and some folks miss it … so take this as a REMINDER!!!
If you are an OFFICER, DELEGATE or ALTERNATE … you are subject to IMMEDIATE DISMISSAL of your position if you (#1) endorse or (#2) financially support a candidate against a duly nominated Republican candidate.
DON’T DO IT!!!
Now it seems simple … as most of us are not running out there endorsing or donating to DEMOCRATS … although the establishment has been known to do that rather often. HERE
But when that Republican nominee is a RINO … or worse … it is easy to say positive things about a write-in conservative candidate, or maybe a libertarian candidate … but DON’T DO IT!!!
As simple as it may seem, there is no clear definition of “endorse” or “financially support” … so expect that if you are a SC Patriot, the “establishment” if going to claim anything you do (including a Facebook Post “like”) for a candidate against the Republican Nominee as an “endorsement”.
Sooooo … as upset as you may be about a “weak” Republican Nominee … be careful and remember … DON’T DO IT!!!. We need you in the America FIRST fight and the “establishment” will be looking for any technical misstep to kick you out of the GOP.
Remember … be careful … and DON’T DO IT!!!

2023 SCGOP Chairman Race
Old Guard Establishment Clearly On It’s Way Out
Drew McKissick, three time SCGOP Chairman & RNC Co-Chair was humiliated by America FIRST SC Patriots.
The 2023 SCGOP convention is behind us and We The People are awake! We knew the delegate numbers were 50/50 … and so did the “establishment” … and they pulled every trick in the book.
Many first timers to the SCGOP convention witnessed with their own eyes the tyranny of the old guard establishment and no respect for SC citizens. Many first timers witnessed not a single elected official in attendance stopping the overt ramrodding of the America FIRST SC Patriots. Now they know … and they are more motivated than ever.
Drew McKissick slipped back in by 16 votes, but it was a HUGE victory for the America FIRST movement. Consider … just one county … just one less “drama” distraction (and there were way too many of these off mission) … just a little better discernment to avoid “self” over “service” … just a little more experience (which we now have) … a little election “fairness” from SCGOP leadership (we did not even have the delegate list, etc.) … any one of those is all we needed for the few extra votes that were necessary for complete VICTORY.
Yes, we EXPOSED them for who they are … and just 16 votes … it was all we needed to stop Drew. That is #Victory!!!
ReOrg 2025 will be a “bloodbath” for the RINO establishment!!! We will most assuredly walk in to the 2025 SCGOP Convention with 75% – 80% + of the delegates and celebrate as a capstone achievement what is expected to come over the next two years.
A developing movement … stay tuned …
