    Just thinking off my head:

    1. You'd need to know the ratio of land-line/cell-phone usage in your polling area.  
    1. You'd need to take other statistics like the age/demographic breakdown of cell phone users
    1. You'd need to have a major in statistics
    1. Mystery statistics I'm forgetting

    Combine 1-4 in a large pot and bring to a boil.

    Or something like that.... but it is doable, trust me.

      I've just heard the phrase "trust me" too many times in my life. I've learned to distrust anyone who utters it.
