Poll Numbers Scared Walsh?
So I've found an interesting happening of events in Jim Walsh's spending report.
On May 17th, Jim Walsh paid Jeff Stonecash to conduct a poll for him. Pollsters seldom start a political project without payment up front because of a danger of campaigns not paying if they dislike the results. Now I don't know exactly how Stonecash makes the calls, but I highly doubt he has or uses a professional phone bank, so I suspect it takes him at least a week, probably longer to do a poll from start to finish. It would be safe to assume, the poll wasn't finished until May 25th. Just a few days later on June 1st, Walsh shells out over $130K to Cookfair Media for ads and media time.
So was this all just a coincidence or did Walsh receive some poll numbers that startled him into running the ads?
