Let met get this straight: if I read it correctly Fox News just did a poll that shows Kerry ahead and someone suggests the pollster pushed them in another direction. So now Fox News pollsters are also trying to conspire to get a poll to show Kerry ahead. In other words, if a poll shows GWB ahead, it's great and let's tout it. If a poll (even a more trustworth one done by Fox) shows him behind, it MUST be that it was a push poll, biased or not accurate. It isn't true that "the only poll that counts on election day" -- the only poll that counts (with some) is the poll that shows our guy ahead. Thank God political consultants have it a bit differently (they look at polls where our candidate may be behind and try to fix it).

See Congressman Billybob's post above. He has the jist of what is meant by "pushed" in this context down absolutely perfectly.
