Nope. They only interview old Tories for their fantasy polling league.

I've been asked on the doorstep once in the run-up to the 2016 Assembly elections (can't remember which polling company though). I'm also on the online panel for the LucidTalk opinion polling company (which is an NI-based polling company).

Someone came round my house once and I did it then (standard political questions and also how much I trust BBC weather (!)) but not heard anything/done another since!

Also millennials like myself don't answer calls from unknown numbers. Furthermore, they call landlines - and who has landlines? wink.gif All fake and thhe results prove it.

No I haven't. Do they even bother to interview people in ultra safe seats like ours?

I'm sure he'll never recover

I answer online YouGov surveys on occasion. Only when I notice them in my inbox and if it looks like an interesting questionnaire from the off, any hint that it'll mostly be brand recognition questions and I'm out of there.

And like I said,.you got profiled. They then visited your HOUSE. Most millennials aren't home owners thsnks to boomers and their neoliberal hard right views smile.gif Most polls are done by LANDLINE too, and given the above plus fact millennials use mobiles, and there you go. The pollsters are horrified and shocked come the day and Tories flop.

I profiled you in the Christmas song thread, showing how easy it is. I figured given your age and your right wing views, Mary's Child Was Born would be your favourite song. If I wanted a poll to say Mary's Child, Step Into Christmas by Elton, Lonely This Christmas, Please Don't Stop (The Cavalry), Oh How I Wish The Bells Begin To Play (On Xmas Day), They Say There'll Be Snow On Xmas and Fairytake of New York are the biggest Xmas songs on buzzjack, I'd interview you and Common Sense!! If I wanted Leona Lewis and Mariah as the results I'd interview myself, Leona forum and JonasStyles. Profiling.

Excuse me Michael but One More Sleep and Underneath The Tree are actually two of my fave Xmas songs and both fairly recent so that's your profiling out the window. biggrin.gif NEXT.

Most *everyone* uses mobiles now - it's almost the 2020's. rolleyes.gif

I wasn't daft enough to give them either my mobile no. or my email address!

Well, one out of 7 is pretty pathetic as a guess! laugh.gif

You didn't pick Mariah, which I do like, and you got the name of the Boney M song wrong *again* - it's 'Mary's Boy Child'!

I guess with that sort of success rate, you ought to work for a polling company! rotf.gif
