    Pew -- which does call cell phones -- has some great reports on this topic.

    Yes, if you don't call cell phones, then probably you weight your demographics to adult demographics -- which tacitly assumes, among other things, that cell-phone-only folks are more or less like landline folks with comparable demographics -- and hope for the best.

    Even if you call cell phones, you still weight to adult demographics, hoping that non-respondents are more or less like respondents with the same demographics.

    This is imperfect, but apparently not awful so far.

    Election protection: there's an app for that!
