Not So Undecided: Obama Voter Allowed to Ask Question

October 10th, 2008 10:31 AM

Remember those fake "undecided voters" during the Democrats' town hall debates last year?

Looks like they're back. Turns out at least one of the questioners in Tuesday's presidential debate actually told event organizers that he would "most likely be voting for Obama" but was allowed to continue participate just the same.

Townhall's Amanda Carpenter caught the admission from Oliver Clark, the man who asked the first question about the disgraced Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac:

So the Sunday before last, I received a call from the Gallop Poll. They asked a few questions regarding my choice in the Presidential election. They asked who I would vote for. I said most likely I would be voting for Barack Obama. They followed with, “is there any chance that you would change your mind“? I said “Of course anything is possible.” They then asked me as an uncommitted voter would I like to participate in the Town hall debate. I said “Of course!”

Democracy is in great hands, isn't it?

Oh and incidentally, and unsurprisingly, Clark was not satisfied with McCain's answer.
