In a political poll. I never have, and don't know one person who ever has - and I've asked plenty.

Anyone?

Yes, many many times. Gallup has called my house about two times a week this time around.

Several years ago for one of the presidential elections I got a cold call from one of the polls asking me who I was voting for in the upcoming election. Then, same year, I got another call asking me the same thing but discovered it was from the republican party.....they sent me stuff in the mail every time they had a candidate running for dog catcher. I don't answer my land line now....just use it for messages....and I haven't had any calls for the last few elections.

I also had someone from a news station ask me about my choice during an exit poll.

I'm not aware of anyone here who has been in prison.


And let's hope it stays that way!

I worked for a company at one time that had a vendor:

Gash Tool Company

Dale Gash was a tool and dye guy.

Hey, did we hijack this thread?

Ah! So you're the one - this explains a lot

As for me - never. If it looks like a number I'm not familar with, it goes straight to the machine.

Gallup comes up Gallup on the caller ID. Seems like I am a "likely Democratic voter." Wonder how they figured that out? Anyway, apparently our household income and other demographics fit several of their categories.

ACORN also called and I told them to limit my resigtration to 20 forms, tops.

Is that per state, or are they spreading it around the country for you?

I was planning on casting a Bob Barr vote in your name. I just want to be sure you're registered in NC.

NEVER,,another reason why i dont put much stock in that **** .
New York Times has Hussein at a 16 pt lead yet another Gallup Poll has em dead even and another has Obama 4 pts ahead.The liberal media will go to any depth to make it look like its a land slide.
I wonder why Chavez and that other jamma ramma peice of slime from Iran (Immajenahad )or whatever the F&*^ his name is,and a few others all want Obama Hussein to win.Along with Ayers,Wright and the list goes on.
But what the hell,,i'm just a gun totin,BIBLE beleiving AMERICAN right ? Someone that doesnt think Joe the Plumber should pay more taxes for some crack head to get food stamps .


but you are wrong about the liberal media, that is just a myth conjured up by the corporate owned media

Gallup don't even include Nader in its polls, How honest is that?

I don't know that I've ever been poled, but I've been shafted on a number of occasions.

It's been many years since I've been polled. But, I do get a lot of political calls. Mike Huckabee called the other night, and Palin has left a message as well. I also get a lot of the calls from various political officials who are inviting me to a 'town meeting' by phone. If the next 20 days are anything like past presidential elections, I'll get calls from everybody from President Bush to Michelle Obama.

Myself and most of my friends all got the "Obesession -Radical Islam's War Against the West" DVD in the mail, the documentary made in 2006 that was mailed out to 28 million homes in the swing states.

Remember to use "Operation Chaotic Behavior" when being polled.
It's one way to humble those who want to tell you who won the election weeks in advance.
Plus, it'll be fun to watch em trying to explain why the states they already called on election night went the other way.
