Landlines

How many people do you know that still exclusively use landlines in this age of cellphones? Do you think an inference could be drawn that their political views might skew differently from the mainstream? 

Or take people that might use ham radios or shortwave as their principal means of communication in today's world or choose to ride to work on a burro instead of a car?  

Do you think that they would be an accurate representation of the mainstream American demographic? Barring the fact that they might hang their shingle on some remote Aleutian atoll, do you think they could be a bit off?

With these questions in mind, I ask that you read this article at HuffPo, A major polling company is throwing its weight behind conspiracy theories.
