Automated Phone Poll

This evening a robopoll funded by the American Futures Fund called.  It asked who I supported for president, how likely I was to vote, who I voted for in 2008, what party I was affiliated with, and then it moved on to demographics:  gender, age group, several questions on religion -- denomination, frequency of church attendance -- and whether or not I was a military veteran.  No questions on any other races.

None of the questions struck me as skewed in any way but robopolls are annoying.  A recording calls and asks you to press 1 if you plan to vote for Barack Obama and 2 if you plan to vote for Mitt Romney, and so on for what seems like a very long time.

American Futures Fund is a conservative organization.
