And the race is off...

The new Congress hasn't even been sworn in yet, and one of our family members (a male Republican) already received a robo-call survey asking about the presidential election last night.

The call led off asking if he would vote for Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour for president if the election were held today, and then asked the same question about President Obama. It also measured support for the tea party, second amendment rights, abortion, same-sex marriage, "Obamacare" and lower taxes.

The call came in on a cell phone, which was a first for us. It was also on a Sunday night, just following a big football game.

We're speculating about who was responsible for the call and what they're getting at. Any thoughts? Do you think the point was the presidential race itself, or rather a way to find out support for some hot-button issues?
