If you have a cell phone, you will get calls from pollsters, telemarketers, politicians, etc. eventually. My wife has one and those calls went from none to just as many as on our land line. An answering machine does wonders for most of them as they generally just hang up when they get the answering machine response.

Something else to think about.... I often lie to the pollster. For some reason we get a lot of polling calls - God knows why, since I live off in the Alaska Bush, but we do have telephones! In any case, if the pollster seems to have a leftist or Democrat slant, I just start lying like a crazy man. I’ve given the phone to my teenage son and let him have fun with the robocalls. Sometimes I’m a young Asian woman without a high school diploma, sometimes I’m an elderly black man earning more than $1 million a year. Yes, yes, yes, God will speak with me about this in the next life. It’ll be good to laugh with the Creator.
I say “Obama” because I don’t want another nail in my tire. Already got one for simply having a “Don’t Tread on Me” magnet next to a “I Miss Reagan” magnet while in ever utopian and tolerant Maryland.
