Exclamation GOP Survey From The Donald?
I've just received this message from "Donald Trump" in my email spam folder, asking me—as his "friend"—to fill out an online survey...
________________________________________________________________________________​____________________________________________
Friend,

It’s time to simplify the tax code. By doing so, we will boost consumer spending, encourage savings and investment, and maximize American economic growth.

So it’s important we get it done right.

That’s why, as a hardworking American, I’d like to know what you think.

We’re getting to work on one of the country’s biggest issues, Friend, and I’d really appreciate your thoughts.

Together, we will…

Provide tax relief for middle-class Americans.
Simplify the code and reduce filing complications.
GROW THE AMERICAN ECONOMY!

So please, take just 5 minutes and fill out my Official Tax Reform Survey today.

Thank you,

Donald J. Trump

This is the attached survey (I've scanned it for malware—it's clear)...

https://gop.com/official-tax-reform-surv...d=35882486

So. Is this genuine? Assuming it is, are all Americans getting it, and why does it go straight to my spam folder if it's legitimately from the GOP? Or does it support some nefarious hidden agenda?

Spam.

At the end of it they'll ask you for money and if you are dumb enough to give them a credit card number it will be all over the web in no time.

No, silly. That's a dangling participle. "Trump" just called himself a hardworking American.

Someone bought a mailing list that contains your email connected to whatever, but not your name. If your name had been with the address, you would be you and not "friend".

These email addresses are traded in the "dark web" by the thousands. Price depends on how old they are.

The GOP would never send a generic letter. You are being researched I assume, to see your political orientation and then you will be either used or sold for targeting fake news.

All but the fake news part are things I am sure of. I assume the fake news because of the generic letter. Can you copy the sender?

Oh, look:

It's not from the GOP, but the GOP is counting and assigning the visitors to sources who are sending the visitors. You've got an affiliate ID at the end.

As the paper it is written on.

Spam and political party propaganda. They are not mutually exclusive.

If I got one, it went to my spam folder. It's on my list of addresses that go directly to the spam folder without passing through the filters, as is the DNC.

Quote: Or does it support some nefarious hidden agenda?

The agenda may be nefarious (or not, depending on your point of view) but is hardly hidden. And if you are unclear about what answers they want - um - just agree (enthusiastically!) with everything. That should do it. Now you can look forward to years of e-mail/text messages/voicemail from the GOP, asking you for advice, money, input, money, your vote, money, and sometimes, even money. (To be fair, the DNC is the same coin, different side.) And if you fill it out completely, they will have a name and phone # to assocoate with the e-mail addy, which ups its selling price value to them.

So, you are going to answer it, right? Yes Right? You will be doing the Right Thing. Thumbsup

Right click the sender in your mail and copy.

What a pile of C R A P.
In fact they have not *even begun* writing it.
The poll makes people think he's actually doing something, where he's done nothing. A fake president if ever there was one.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

No, the problem is that he's a really real president. A really shitty one, but real nonetheless.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
