Wow, really interesting article over at Zogby International talking about how they did the first mobile phone poll to see whom people are going to vote for. In an obvious nod to the incredibly (and inexplicably) popular American Idol pop candy show, the folks over at Zogby finally figured out that there is a huge group of people who don’t answer their land line phones anymore — and, surprise, they are young and liberals! Oh by the way, this isn’t a politically motivated post, just an opportunity to point out to you that the times really are a changin’. Stop over and take a look … here’s a little quote:
“Mr. Zogby went on to note that Zogby International plans to explore future text-message surveys in response to concerns throughout the polling industry about reaching mobile telephone users. He added that text-messaging has become an important tool for political activists on both sides of the political spectrum, and Zogby International will be at the forefront of technology shifts that affect polling.”
No shit … What do you think?
