Getting Over the Wireless Hurdle

Posted on Jan 11, 2016 in Memos

It is a fact that voters are moving rapidly off of land lines and going to exclusively cell phones.  Recently though, it has been reported that 75% of Pew Research polling will be dialing cell phones in order to achieve more accurate results.  Unfortunately for many campaigns, these calls to cell phones are twice as costly as a typical live call.
