I just got robo-polled

Posted on 04/08/2014 7:56:39 PM PDT by Two Kids' Dad

I just got a robo-call from a marketing company purporting to be in Washington DC asking my opinion on various subjects, but it quickly became clear it was paid for by the Jeb Bush people.


TOPICS: Chit/Chat; Government; Politics
KEYWORDS: jebbush; obama; poll; robocall
I think the robo-voice said the company was called CCR Research or something like that. The phone number came up as (202) 517-9270. The call started with the basic questions about the direction I feel the country is going and who's mostly to blame, stuff like that. Then they asked me to rate various politicians from strongly support to strongly oppose, with the usual gradients in between. Of course, they began with Zerobama and Hitlery, then went to Scott Walker, Rand Paul, Jeb Bush, Chris Christy, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. No mention of Sarah Palin, which I found telling. I gave Ted Cruz a "strongly support" and gave all the others crappy marks. They asked about zerobamacare and who I have my current health insurance through (employer provided). They asked about gay marriage and illegal immigrants and then asked a question about a pathway to citizenship and another question about Jeb Bush. Sorry I don't remember what the question was, but his was the only Republican/Rino name mentioned in more than one question. I gave him the lowest marks available. Oh, and they asked about my opinion on political family dynasties! That was what sealed the deal for me that it was a Rove/Jeb poll. Screw them both!

Now that I've vented I'm going to go watch the baseball game. Go Angels!

Its clear they are going to try to force Jeb down our throats like they did McCain and Romney with the whole “take him or you’ll get a democrat who’ll be far worst” schtick. I’m pretty sure that there’ll be very little difference between Jeb and Hillary except for one or two issues if they became president.

But the thing that most people don’t understand is that the GOP Establishment probably would love to work with President Hillary just as long as they controlled both chambers where they have say over the money and power

You know, I have a friend who insists that the next president has already been chosen.

I’m starting to believe him.

Do you enjoy talking to a robo-voice?

If not: Then why waste your valuable time participating in such a process?

For my part, I have more important things to do, like paring my toenails.

Regards,

Not answering a number I don't recognize is the highlight of my day.

Thankfully, no. No option for hearing it in Spanish but it did ask if I’m of the Latin/Hispanic persuasion.

It’s becoming more and more apparent these days that there are plenty of shenanigans going on behind the political scenes and the so-called “conspiracy theorists” aren’t looking nearly as nutty for speaking out.

I actually preferred the robo-voice to a live person because it only involved having me press a button for each question rather than having a little voice in my head wondering if the person on the other end was representing my views accurately or not. Last time I was polled by a person she sounded like TaShawnda from Compton and axed me questions with an accusatory tone.

Since I’m currently not working I try to make it a game to waste the time of most telemarketers. But when it comes to political polls I want to make sure my voice is heard so if I read an article that quotes a recent poll I can think that maybe I steered the results a tad. If every FReeper got polled about Jeb Bush his numbers would suck out loud and Rove might tell him to quietly bow out.

Caller ID happened to be one of the phone features and helps, but the best part is the answering machine part when I'm home to monitor the message. I don't have to drop what I'm doing to run like a robot to the phone just because it rings.

If it is important the caller will say so.

“TaShawnda from Compton and axed me questions with an accusatory tone.”
