    Interesting -- I've wondered about this. At our home (in Wisconsin) we've been getting many calls that appear to be from polling agencies. But we can see the numbers and read the source of the call on our telephones and on our television screens. So we don't get up and respond to the call.

    With the technology we have today, who is actually responding to those polling calls? I suspect it is more likely to be people who haven't worked all day!!

      the racial backgrounds in IVR polls.  I think people just plan lie.  SUSA has the same problem.

      But the topline numbers are still usefull.
