No, see, THIS is why I think polling is a waste of time.

For starters, these polling companies, they only call land lines. They don't call cell phones. So right off the bat, if you're under the age of 30, you don't get called. Your opinion doesn't count. And then of course a lot of Canadians, I'd go so far as to say the average Canadian, just doesn't like to pick up the phone if they don't know who's on the other line. That's why God invented call display. And keep in mind, most of these calls are all made in the evening between five and nine pm. So if you have a social life or small kids, or you do shift work, or you happen to like Jeopardy, your opinion doesn't count.

I've never, ever been polled, either, by anybody but the student loans people and their ilk.

P.S. Would it be considered tasteful to burn Harper in effigy yet?
