Aye, of course they're legit.Yea cause those polling companies are real legitimate...give me a break...
It's literally their business. Which they'd go out of if they weren't.
Politics is only a tiny portion of their business, also.
No, they don't cold call.They cold call people and the only ones who pick up are old people who still have landlines and haven't learned to ignore spam calls and have time to sit around the house all day and talk to some random jackass on the phone. The people who answer these calls are the same morons who withdraw thousands of dollars from their bank because they belive "Bob Green" with the heavy Indian accent is actually from the IRS and is sending the cops to arrest them.
You have to register to be a participant in polling. There's phone and online polling now too.
You, demonstrably, don't know what you're talking about.
