The most important fact that I take away from Barone is that less and less voters answer their phones to participate in polls. With caller ID most screen their incoming calls. Personally, I have been not answered numerous calls from IPSOS, Survey USA and various front groups. Michael feels that pollsters are very worried about future techniques they can use to keep their profession viable and cost effective.

I never answer them either or if they want to ask questions, I hang up.

I am thinking the same thing. I think pollsters after this election will have to adjust their polling methods. Very few people are answering their land lines for the pollsters as an example. Some pollsters are still using the 2008 turnout which IMHO is wrong for 1012. I think all of this bodes well for Mitt.
