Polling conversations.

One of the fun things about porting my parents' old landline number is I get polled. There was one recent poll, which seemed legitimate (i.e., not a push poll) about a state senate race. I knew nothing and said so.

The most recent one identified itself as the "Republican Majority Coalition".

Interviewer: "If the election were held today, who would you be voting for? John McCain, the Republican, or Barack Obama, the Democrat."
Me: "Neither."
Interviewer: "So, you're undecided?"
Me: "Actually, I'm waiting to see if Bob Barr gets on the ballot here."
Interviewer: (slight chuckle) "I think a lot of people are going to be looking at that as an alternative this year. Thank you for your time."

I don't think that one was particularly legit. But it's fun to get them to check other boxes on their form.
