I usually get about 6-8 web polls and 2 phone polls a month, as a member of the Gallup panel.... but in the past 2 to 3 months... the polls have not had anything of substance, but have been on pure fluff... Take for example the poll I received this morning... "ONLINE NETWORKING AND GREETING CARDS SURVEY" How often do you visit social networking sites like facebook.com or myspace.com? Daily Weekly Monthly Less often Never How often do you visit professional networking sites like linkedin.com or spoke.com? Daily Weekly Monthly Less often Never How often do you visit dating sites like eharmony.com or match.com? Daily Weekly Monthly Less often Never And it just goes from there Not even the normal question at the beginning of the surveys of whether you approve of the job the president is doing, the job congress is doing, etc But over the past 4-5 years I have been surveyed by Gallup, it has not been this fluffy... I wonder why the sudden change?
