Do Pollsters IGNORE Deaf Voters?
I must get this off my chest and share them with you. Since I discovered POLL by phone, not websites. I wonder if the polling results (with many of them being a 4% margin for error) actually represents the population? Has any Pollsters ever use Relay Service to call Deaf voters? Has any Deaf Democrats and Deaf Republicans or Deaf (any other Party) ever received a phone call from any pollsters asking them questions on who or what they will vote for if the elections were held today?

I have never received any calls from pollsters. Just last week, I received a call from my energy provider company asking survey questions, which was suppose to take 12 minutes, ended up taking more than 30 minutes. Couldnt this extra time be the reason why pollsters do not want to contact Deaf voters for their opinions?

1. Well, I have no idea how they choose people, but I've only gotten one call, ever.
And the poor guy who was calling was so grateful that I was willing to answer his questions. He said most people hang up on him... :crazy: :(
