Have you ever been polled?Page 1 of 1    
The polls say this and that but who are they polling? I've asked a whole lot of people in various parts of the country, from various walks of life, and none of them have ever been polled on political opinions. So I'm curious, have you ever been polled? And is there some kind of oversight on polls? Do you think the polls are really neutral?

Yes; I was recently polled by phone.
The questions were neutral, the person asking them was careful not to emphasize certain words, and it was only at the end of the poll that I was told who had sponsored it.

I constantly get calls from pollsters, but because I put a privacy screen on my phone, only those who I allow in get through. Pollsters and telemarketers are blocked the minute I recognize an 800 number that calls repeatedly, or I see "politics" or "pol" in the caller ID record.
