Quick Question (re: Polls)

How does somebody get contacted for a poll- unless you self-select for a survey (i.e. YouGov)? I have NEVER been called to participate in any kind of random non-self-selected poll out there. Granted, I don't pick up the phone every time it rings, especially if it's a number I don't recognize, but I've never been selected for one of the seemingly thousands of polls that go out during election time. Has anybody else here ever been polled? Do you have to sign up or be on some kind of list? Do they go off of voter registrations? I'm just really curious.

It's like people just get mad about certain things and blindly turns on the party in power with no thinking about whether the other party even cares about solving them. And then they wonder why we're still talking about the same problems year after year and why their lives still suck.

So, by Republican logic

the TSA is doing an awful job stopping guns from being carried onto planes?

Well pregnant people

you may die in pregnancy/childbirth or have to birth your rapist's baby, but you won't have to pay sales tax on baby items.
