Public opinion polling happens frequently via the telephone. In these surveys a random sample of people are contacted to take part in the poll. Are you willing to give your opinion?

According to the Pew Research Center — most say no. In all of the surveys Pew has done 2012, only 14 percent of the people they reached on the phone agreed to participate. This figure is down significantly from fifteen years ago when 43 percent of the households contacted agreed to take part in the survey. Perhaps the growth of cellphones and the diminishing home landlines have something to do with it.

So, take our survey and tell us if you would.
