    They screen the same under-30s who have landlines over and over. They do the same thing for African Americans and poor people. The problem is they always reach the same young, African American and poor people, who are always underrepresented, and then they give those answers more weight. I never bought that. Young people who still have land lines probably all still live with their parents ... wouldn't that be skewing it towards a certain type of young person?

    Yes, it will evolve, but I think it will evolve into an even less scientific tool for people to use as a political weapon rather than any sort of sample that gets a cross-section of the population.
