Damnit!!!! I got called for a survey on Health Care just now
but they already had 'too many people in your age demographic'

so I couldn't take the poll. and the young man who called said it was too bad as my opinion of being in favor of a public option or even a single payer was 'very unusual'

argh!!! :banghead:

1. If you're older, they're the easist ones to get on the phone. My firm used to ask for
"the youngest person registered to vote."

Some firms ask for "the youngest male registered to vote" because young men are the most difficult to get on the phone. Older women the easiest.

2. That sounds a little odd.
It seems if they were going for specific demographics, they would have asked your age before asking your opinion . . .

5. they did and I offered my hubby (as he is younger) but the 50-54 age group
was covered.

he told me it was a "National Health Care" survey then asked the vetting questions

are you a registered voter? yes

did you vote in the 2008 elections? yes

do you plan to vote in the 2010 elections? yes

your age? 54

sorry, too bad

7. Sounds like a Republican Push Poll to me
Edited on Wed Sep-16-09 09:04 PM by BeatleBoot
It's a fake poll. They are using dirty political tricks now.

No legitimate poll would tell you that.

These fucking pricks will stop at nothing.

Do not believe what they told you.

10. it was a 20 second exchange as we were hanging up
he had already told me that he couldn't use my opinion then I said I liked the public option and he said I was unusual

maybe it was, since when I said "Those damned Republicans are lying their asses off" he hung up pretty fast LOL

and I know Steve Pearce is going to try to win back his seat in 2010 from our Democratic Teague.


hmmmmmm

14. Listen, I got onne of these the night the President addressed the Joint Session of Congress
they were just trying to get me away from the TV set that night and I knew it immediately.

I hung up on them, but I have caller ID.

Do you have caller ID?

Just saying, if you do, wright down the number and give it to your local Dem HQ or Congressmen.

Believe me they'll want the info.

13. Me too! They said they needed a man, so I lowered my voice and started smashing beer cans on my
forehead.

It didn't work.
