Polling

I wondered this during the election (actually for sometime) who takes these polls that tell the world:
Obama's approval ratings are....
Bush hit's the lowest approval rating ever...
Most Americans approve this stimulus package by a .... margin
A majority believes....

I have never taken a poll. No one I know has ever taken a poll. With the theory of 6 degrees of separation it would seem that with all these polls out there I would know several people who have been asked polling questions. I often question the results of these polls. I wonder, "What questions were asked?" "How were these questions asked?" and "Who was asked these questions?"

Have you ever been polled? Consider this your first (perhaps) poll!

"Never" was the first word. (Sorry.)

I am very distrustful these days, so even when the pollers call me (and they have, and claim to be pollers), I tell them i am not interested. I always think they will be trying to sell me something.
