I answer them - but warn at the beginning that if it smells like a push poll, I'm hanging up.

The DeMaio campaign hit me with two push polls this year. Not that I'm a Filner fan, but push polls are shady and it made me vow not to vote for DeMaio.

I answer them and play with them if I have the time. "Well, ma'am, sorry to disappoint you, but I'm voting for the Black Hand Party this Election Day."

We don't have a land line.

And as far as I know they don't do cell phone yet. Or at least not mine.

I've had telemarketers of various stripes call my mobile. Not sure about pollsters. Totally illegal, but it happens anyway.

Oddly, for a while I was getting more junk calls on the mobile than the landline!

I can't vote (in this poll). I've never been called by a political pollster (landline or cell).

Gallup just called with their "weekly poll". I just hung up ...I feel terrible, that pollster is trying to work...maybe I'll try *69.

I don't answer any polls.

Can you add that as a choice ?
