Polls... what a crock!

My question is.. Have you ever been in any of these polls? I have been asked twice. Both times my response was listed as "unresponsive". The problem was that I didn't like any of the answers I had to choose from. First was a Reagan and
welfare question in an East Texas Mall and the second was in a park in San Pedro
Kailifornia. This poll was a Clinton poll about the economy. Which Clinton policy is
most responsible for the growth of the stock market?
My choices were going to show that he shits diamonds, pisses gold or cures the sick! I think I used the phrase "painted turd" and was deemed too uncouth for a civilized poll.
I don't trust polls!
There may be some honest ones out there, but there are supposed to be honest
lawyers, used car salesmen and Insurance companies too!
Polls are like statistics...I can make it say ANYTHING. They are for manipulation...not information.
