"The two men and their staffs came to a tentative agreement on three poll questions that simply measured support and name-recognition for each candidate. But then Monetti backed out, because Petersen wouldn’t allow him to have the poll topped with a question asking respondents if they would vote for Petersen if they knew additional things about him, including that he “does not believe in God.”
They’re running 2nd and 3rd so they came up with a plan for one of them to drop out. Monetti wanted the poll to tell everyone that the other guy wasn’t religious.
Stupid agreement to start with IMO.
