With caller ID, I don't pick up unless I know who it is. The only reason we still have a landline is for backup if the cell phones goes down and the hospital needs to get in touch with us.

So polls can definitely be skewed.

The last earthquake I was in (and it wasn't one of those little things like Dallas got the other day), some landlines were messed up and cell phones, while operational, were jammed with calls.

Text messages got through.
