When a stranger calls and identifies themselves as a pollster, will you say “yes” or “no” to voting for Trump In 2020?

Many Trump supporters are afraid of the outrage and hatred by the left and just as many of my family members and friends, I believe most Trump supporters will not give their honest vote to a stranger/pollster by phone or in the street, unless surrounded by fellow supporters. JMO!

I do not fit the Trump supporter demographic, thankfully. As such, people never assume I’m a Trump supporter. If someone did, I’d think they were bonkers...or trolling me, I suppose.

Anyway, I’d give them an emphatic, “Noooo!!”

I don't answer calls from unknown numbers so haven't answered any political poll in decades.

discussing politics isn't prudent in Austin unless you are a progressive. the chance for confrontation and name calling is ever present. trump will get my vote in 2020, but few outside my immediate family know.

A political call could be a poll or an ad. I ignore robocalls, but once a polling team knocked on my door. They were in something called "Workers for America," like a Jehovah's Witnesses act without the bibles.

I never tell the truth to poll-takers. I always tell them the exact opposite of what I really do.

I am sure some will lie, although the reasons are unknown. Maybe its in their genes, as its the case with Trump himself.

I’m not a Trump supporter but, based on the current lineup of alternatives, will be voting for him anyway. No, I would never tell anyone, other than my husband or sisters, who had even a remote chance of identifying me that I plan on doing so. My husband voted for him in ‘16 and has not confirmed that to anyone other than me.

I feel no need to lie to them, I just say nothing and hang up.
