Are opinion polls exempt from the do not call list? If not that would be more proof that the landline polls are inaccurate.

I am sure that it would have some impact. Cell phones are also a major consideration. Polls are not as trustworthy as they used to be.

It is my understanding they are to stop unwanted sales calls only. Volunteer, non-profit fundraising and polling are not included.

Political Organizations are exempt from the DNC list.

It is a good place to find phone #'s too.

Correct. This was for sales calls only. I did cold calling for an IT consulting firm for two years and you can bypass the list so long as you don't try and sell anything. Giving out information w/o solicitation is key for businesses.

As for politics, it doesn't apply.
