If I got a phone call and it was identified as "gallup" or whatever....

I would answer the call and a presidential poll but all the calls I've received over the cycle has been numbers out of the area and masked with a second number with our area code. My machine let's me see the call is not originating from the local number and besides, most people have caller ID. I had plenty I let go to the machine, most are robo calls and hang up immediately but every now and then I get one of trump yelling at me to vote for him, etc. and I just cut it off.

So, if pollsters really cared about who I will vote for, then they should identify themselves instead of those numbers with 15 digits, etc.

I'm still getting calls with some strangers name and I don't answer and they never leave a message.
