How Phone Polls REALLY Work
I received a fascinating call from a member of the local grassroots community. Just today, he received an automated telephone poll call for Republican primary candidates. And despite Rep. Ron Paul’s obvious stature as a leading candidate, Rep. Paul was nowhere to be found on the list of choices.
So my friend pressed “6? to choose “Other”. However, even though he pressed “6? to choose “Other”, the system responded as if he had pressed “7? and announced that he had been removed from the list. Keep in mind that “6? is about as far as you can get from “7? on a telephone keypad. He’s sure he pressed “6?.
Thanks to the miracles of digital answering services, the whole call was recorded. Listen to it yourself here. I wonder who IMC Polling is? Don’t think I’ll be using them in my campaign.
Next time you hear of Ron Paul “polling in the single digits”, remember the phone poll that didn’t count “Other” votes.
Addendum: Others have commented, and I’ve confirmed to my own ear’s satisfaction, that the touch tone in the clip is, in fact, a “6?. It’s nowhere near a “7?. I don’t have perfect pitch, but certainly close enough.
