Pacific Crest Research is back, asking about the Congressional race

Atlantic Yards Report

PCR.gifNorman Oder has to be some kind of telephone-poll magnet because Pacific Crest Research "reached out" again. This time the poll was pretty straightforward, primarily looking at the heated 11th Congressional District race with some Atlantic Yards stuff sprinkled in for good measure.

Oder took notes and then wondered:

So what’s the goal?

Is Forest City Ratner trying to figure out how to influence the Congressional race? Or is the developer trying to gauge the attitude of the supporters of various candidates so as to respond after the election? Or could it be some other patron altogether?

I asked a supervisor who’d commissioned the poll. He said staffers aren’t told, and that only the president of the Pacific Crest Research knows. His name is Matt Hewitt.
