Posted February 18, 2011 at 9:53am
Stu is a Twitter newbie but has already mastered the craft, and he got a record number of questions Thursday.
Since it was on Twitter, of course, his answers were kept to under 140 characters. A transcript follows.
Welcome to our 5th Twitter Q&A w/ @stupolitics ! He writes 2 columns a wk & authors Rothenberg Political Report, longtime indep. pol analyst
Thanks for all your questions. Let’s get started!
Q7! MT @l_whittington W/ cells, auto dial & spike in crappy data, is there still polling out there we can trust? What kind & who? (Ed. note: Lauren is Roll Call’s political editor.)
Q10! MT @edmondesq: When I tell people I live/work in DC they ask if media here should be on Obama payroll. How beholden is RC to WH whims?
Q15! MT @sppeoples S.Israel refuses to say Dems can re-take House in ’12. Is he right to be cautious? Your # for Dem pickups? (Ed. note: Steve is a Roll Call political reporter.)
.@WhosGonnaWin Nope. VPs don’t matter. Relief pitchers do.
Final question from Roll Call’s @cbellantoni: What’s your wild card Senate seat Dems could flip in 2012?
Thanks so much to @stupolitics for our 5th Twitter Q&A. Transcript to be posted at RollCall.com later.
Next week’s edition will be with Paul Singer, Roll Call’s lobbying & investigations editor @singernews
