Weiner Says the Poll Means Bloomberg Will Get ‘Very Nasty’

On a conference call from Haiti, where he is on a trip with other members of Congress, Anthony Weiner told reporters he’s been the victim of push-polling conducted by Michael Bloomberg’s mayoral campaign, and that it indicates the mayor is “preparing to do some mudslinging” and get “very nasty” in order to get re-elected.
The calls Weiner was referring to were described by one of his aides in a New York Times story as “push polling,” although a number of pollsters have disputed that characterization, saying it is more likely Bloomberg people are, as most campaigns do, testing out a negative message.
