  •  You can't robopoll a cell phone (0+ / 0-)

    But I'm not sure whether there's a knowledge requirement.

    I have a recollection that PPP used to claim that it actually was reaching cell phones because it called numbers on Aristotle's voter lists.

    Ok, so I read the polls.

      You're gonna have to link that. We've never made that claim for our PPP polling, and I'd be pretty surprised if PPP did. Hell, we go to the trouble of doing live calls into IN and ND.

      •  Never said you guys made that claim (0+ / 0-)

        and I'm not even confident PPP did. It's just a "recollection," quote possibly of an inference I made at the time. Thinking about it, I doubt they ever said that. I do remember wondering if it were true, though.

        Just how do they filter the numbers they get from Aristotle? (Or does A do it for them?)

        Ok, so I read the polls.
