People Polls

Posted by Lyn Ladds - Guest

I have been thinking over the weekend and something applies to more than just the smoking ban and can also apply locally as well as nationally are these so called Polls of People that are apparently undertaken and we are then told that "the majority of people polled were in favour of ...."

I would like to know if anyone out there knows anyone who has been polled. I have never known anyone on any of the pro smoking sites who has admitted being polled, nor do I know of anyone personally.

Do these polls actually exist or do the people setting the polls have a group of people who will vote the way they want and these are the only ones polled, except for perhaps a handful of ordinary people, just so some anwers are different?

Does anyone have any idea how these work or how anyone can find out how wide these polls actually are?
