I'm getting a lot of political survey calls these days. I blow many of them off, as I have things to do. But I do take some of them, as I like to skew the results by lying like a rug. The idea is to give my non-preferred candidates a sense of complacency, and my preferred candidates a sense of urgency, and to sway that small but important group of voters who don't like landslides and vote for the (perceived) underdog.

However, on issues I generally speak my mind, as I'm (as always) using other peoples' surveys as my own personal soapbox to send messages to both the voters and candidates.
