    I wonder who is giving answer to the poll takers.

    No one I know well has been asked how they voted, or intend to vote on Election Day.

    This was a topic today at my home.

    Could it be Fake Polling?

    Anyone care to admit to being talked to & question by some major poll taker.

    Got a call a couple of days ago from someone saying they were a Republican poll taker and they just "had a few quick questions". Republican or not, I told her I don't do polls and promptly hung up.

    Polls typically over sample democrats. Stop listening to them.

    I have had one number call me in past few weeks 96 times. Never answered and blocked it. If it is a demo poll. they probably reported they have somebody for Biden 96 times. And nope i am not calling back the fwuckers... And i know its no family member, I am lone Survivor they are all gone. Sadly.

    If it is Melania i will be sad. Dv1ojuvWkAAOYm0.jpg

    Listen to Dan Bonginos show from this weekend. He had a pollster on that seems pretty knowledgeable about 2016, and what is happening now. He’s the one that came up with the idea of asking about your who do you think your neighbor will vote for. He believes Trump is winning.


    Let’s be real man, Obama spoke to a crowd of 5 people, Harris has been speaking to crowds of less than 20 people, Joe is nowhere to be seen. He has no more campaign rallies scheduled from what I understand. I feel like they realized they’re losing and can’t win.

    Well I wonder why the Pollster did not set upon the interstate, and count cars. These caravans of Cars, Trucks, and SUV's are all over every weekend. Step kids went to Tuscon the Cavavan they encountered was 15 miles plus long.

    If Biden get in people will be limited on fuel for fun, in GREEN NEW DEAL.

    I usually don't answer. As an informal experiment I took a call this evening.

    The pollster would not identify who they were taking the info for.

    I told them not interested.

    First time I got a poll since 2008.

    A few years ago, I did actually participate in a poll. Quinnipiac poll. Took about 30 minutes. I don’t think they liked my answers or extra commentary.

    Hmmmm.

    Brief summary of my 70+ years on the planet:
    - I have been polled over a dozen times by the Republican Party this election cycle.
    - I have been polled three or four times by the Democratic Party this election cycle.
    - I have been polled at least 50-60 times in the past by both parties.
    - My congressman periodically calls me to participate in a dozen or more "live, real-time, town halls".

    As an aside:
    - I have participated in the Nielsen TV ratings 9 or 10 times in the past.
    - I have participated in the Arbitron Radio ratings 12 or 15 times in the past.
    - I participated in a Harvard Graduate student's dissertation thesis survey regarding a host of health related issues. At 5 and 10 year intervals the same person called me again for follow-up interviews.

    Edited to add: I have had the same telephone number since July 1977.

    I'm just waiting for the law to show up and ask me about some of my answers.

    I was asked in a survey on YouTube the other day, who will I vote for, I said Biden.

    I don't answer numbers I don't know. I did get a few messages from reps for Dems running for office in TX. I also get text all the time asking who I plan to vote for from Dems. Not sure if it's actually from the Dem party or a scam.

    *Let me add that I have already voted, Biden did not get the vote.
