When replying to polls, do you ever blatantly lie? Do you enjoy skewing results? Is it dependant on the topic?

I dont on the most part respond to polls. I can never find my point of view. On another forum I used to run we had a brilliant young poster find the perfect solution. Add a choice called Mu it means No Opinion or I obstain

Depends on the pollster and the topic. If an NDP pollster phones and polls me I lie. Same with Cons or Glibs. Greens get the truth. Market surveys get the truth.
I guess basically I guess I only lie to polls about voting.

Polls are polls. A recent poll queried teenage boys on whether they had ever intentionally sought out sex sites on the Internet. The respondents, with the permission of their parents, participated. Seems only 39% ever had. Now that is skewing!

I dont either. Im so absent minded I couldnt keep it all straight. But I know a few husbands that find it easier to fib than face their wives with the trueth

In polls I usually tell the truth, unless my opinion isn't represented, then I just don't answer.

Polls are the most useless form of information gathering invented for diverse reasons...

We all love to have our input on matters which interest us....so we vote..... and skew too and it's a hoot....

Are we always honest in our responses? Of course not..... the thrill of being anonymous is a temptation.

When people give stats based on polls... even the biggies done around election time... you are
looking at an agenda.... a response based on a necessary bias or need. I've always called polls
the "*****s" of the media...

It's like the forbidden fruit.... we all have to taste the apple....to satisfy ourselves not the pollsters.

GREAT QUESTION TONINGTON !!

I only lie to protect peoples feelings..telemarketers and pollsters don't even qualify as human to me,so misleading them is just a fun exercise.

To add to what Curio said, anyone who knows a thing or two can skew results by changing the wording of the question posed.

Also, I only added the last option as a joke, but there are people who generally don't respond.
