Hmmmmmm.

They asked if I would go out on a cold January night in 2008 to the Presidential Caucus.

They listed at least 10 candidates - including Gore.

Asked for my top issue (listed a dozen or so - Iraq, terrorism, health care, education, environment ...)

Then they asked a ton of questions about the environment, different proposals, statements pro and con - which were persuasive, which were not, how important an issue it is for my vote and on and on and on.

They had me rate different candidates on the environment - Gore, Kerry, Edwards, Clinton, Richardson, Feingold, McCain (only Repub mentioned)

Asked if I had heard of a little movie - An Inconvenient Truth - and had I seen it.

IMO It seemed to be a very Gore-centric poll.

Just thought I'd share...

:)

6. Interesting
It could also be an environmental group like The Sierra Club or League of Conservation Voters trying to test how potent their issues are in the caucus. Of course, it could also be a media outlet, but I like the idea that Gore might be doing some research to consider a run.
