Skip to comments.(VANITY) Was just called by a poll company - Public Policy Polling
Posted on 09/26/2012 8:06:21 PM PDT by justlittleoleme
I thought I was actually going to get to answer a real poll
They asked me four questions:
1. Are you aware there a national election coming up?
2. Is this a land line or cell phone?
3. What is your age.
4. How likely are you to vote? I said very likely.
Then they said, ok thank you thats all the questions we have and hung up on me.
SO. I wasn't asked the poll questions because I am a likely voter? Or my age or landline? Yea that makes alot of sense. That should be a really accurate poll.
I am located in Utah.
They will put you down as an Obama vote..doesn’t matter that they didnt even bother asking you who you will vote for, as long as your a likely voter they will put you down as an Obama vote..that is how these polls are being made, by doing BS tactics like this
Same happened to me . Now I hang up on them
Age and landline tell them a lot. If you answered over 50 and on a landline, very conservative.
Same happened to me . Now I hang up on them. we have also been getting calls for my dad ..dead 20 years.
I had a call the other day answered the questions as if I was a 20 year old black female Independent. Said I was voting for Romney. But not sure of who I was voting for in the Senate race.
Someone just called my house now, my Mom answered the phone and I heard her tell them “I’m not interested” then she hung up. I asked her who called and she said “political research” I have no idea what organization they are with since she told them she wasn’t interested. We have Prop 32 Ads on constantly so maybe it had to do with that not sure
make more drooling sounds next time.
Those are the respondents they are looking for.
PPP? (chuckle) They’ll take your response as “Well, he didn’t say at any time during our call that he’s voting for Romney. Mark him down for Obama!”.
Probably not a real political poll. This could be a company collecting basic data for telemarketers, creating a list to sell. Hot numbers where someone answers.
I get calls that are a poll, but after I answer three questions, as a “reward”, I can sign up for a free cruise to the Bahamas.
I was included in the Quinnipiac-NYT/CBS poll that was such crap to read today.
Completely unscientific in their data analysis and reported results.
I’ve gotten a few calls lately showing polling firm names on the caller I.D. and when I answer the phone there are a few clicks and silence. I say “hello” a couple of times thinking that it’s an automated call that needs to be routed to a live person, but then the call is dropped. I guess they’re counting me as an Ubama voter, too. After this election we’ll find that the level of distrust and disgust with the media and the polling companies will be at an all-time high, on par with used car salesmen and shady lawyers.
Sounds like you were polled on the demographic for the likely voter.
I am a Black woman, college educated, generally consider myself to be 'liberal leaning' between 30-40 years old and I support voter ID laws.
That should help their demographics.
That is my thought as well.
Better to answer a known, legitimate, online poll than to give information to strangers over the phone when the stranger initiates the call.
“Don’t pick up the phone if you don’t recognize the number” is a sanity keeper during election season.
You go girl! LoL
I live in Los Angeles . This election I see more Romney stickers than Obama. This was never so in 2008. You would hardly see Mcain Stickers. This is a big secret , even Hispanics are dogging Obambie . I would say Californa is not safe for him . I feel it’s about 50/50 who wins this stinking state . What does that say for th rest of country. In 2008 , I predicted early on that obammer would win when he broke away from Hillary. This time the pollsters are making this dramatic . It’s a safe bet to say that ROMNEY has the wind pushing him . He will coast to become 45th president. It’s a given . Look at obammers faces. ROMNEY was selected at least four years ago . Strings are behind the scenes.
You sounded too racist.
Tell 'em you ordered an extra large with pepperoni, and you'll be ready with a twenty at the front door.
