    Poll asked political preference questions and two demographic questions that were nothing beyond normal. I gave incorrect birth year and chose not to answer race/ethnicity. Nothing too suspicious except lack of detail about the company and the purpose.

    This opinion poll is clearly biased against the Democratic and Independent political parties in its wording and intent. I started it in good faith but quickly decided I wouldn’t waste my time finishing it.

    Only asked for my name age and gender. Even for those who may actually get survey questions, THIS IS NOT A LEGITIMATE SURVEY SITE!

    After it asks for gender, birth year, race & income (I lied or declined) it asks to rank my opinion of various neighborhoods in my city, not including my own. Probably a marketing ploy. I deleted data and bailed. “Stop” not acknowledged.

    I tried them twice. Both times, the questions turned into a hunt to find the most convincing talking points for the leftist democrat candidate. What a scam!!!

    I took the poll to see what it was. Basic political preference questions on local (!) congressional race, some demographic questions. There was a bit where they tried to change my opinion by first sharing positive info on each candidate and then negative info on each candidate.

    The questions are great examples of how to conduct a poll where the outcome will be biased. Someone who leans right would think they were able to answer exactly how they wanted to answer and it was a great survey. Someone who leans left would more often find that none of the options actually expressed how they felt. Example of what I mean: “Which is your favorite color? a. Orange, b. Green”. What option does that give for someone whose favorite color is Purple? The results of such a poll would indicate that 0% of people chose purple as their favorite color. A poll like this is might look and feel like an actual research poll, but it’s being used for propaganda. It’s being used to subvert the will of the people. Pay some bloody attention and stop seeing what you want to see.

    Doesn't seem like an honest poll. The questions seemed biased, but the gender question is what got me -- who in this day and age asks about gender, offers only a binary choice, and requires an answer? I'd be surprised if it was a genuine neutral pollster.

    Received the text today with a link to the survey but decided against it after reading these comments. I’m always leery of links from anyone I don’t know, so I check a few websites first.

    Generally a bad idea to click links from unknown sources with little to zero proof of who they are and how to find out. Skip this text and block the number. If a "company" is too lazy to provide a source, it isn't worth my time or security

    Not sure why a site based in the UK would be doing research for stuff in the US. Seems sketchy as hell.

    My guess is that this poll was funded by the Illinois Policy Institute which is a Right-Wing political “think tank” that opposes full funding of public schools, and supports the use of tax dollars for private and religious schools. The poll was designed to help them craft their messaging.

    It started by presenting many of their arguments to try to convince me that legislation to fund private schools with public money was a good thing. It did eventually start to test the other sides arguments, so perhaps it is not a completely biased “push poll” that is only designed to look like a poll when it’s really just propaganda.

    I think this is a moderate to right leaning polling organization. That said, I believe it is a legitimate poll trying to identify opinions. It is NOT a push poll; simply trying to influence my opinion.

    The questions were well phrased and allowed me to answer any way I wished, no matter what political viewpoint I held. It regularly asked for me to provide details of why I answered the way I did, instead of just asking binary; yes or no questions.

    This shows that someone is actually reading the answers.

    Yes received a text poll from Research-Polls. It was obviously a Push-Poll trying to influence an election in PA. Do not take it or at least recognize that it's not your opinion they want.

    Before going to the poll link I received from Research-polls.com, I took the time to reak through all the comments on the company that were listed here. Despite the negative opinion of many responders, I took the poll to form my own opinion. The poll was mainly about mandatory conversion from fossil fuels to "clean energy", specifically wind and solar. I thought the questions were as neutral politically as possible, and two sections clearly stated wanted my response to the "push-poll" arguments of pro and con advocates. I only wished that nuclear power had been introduced as a viable alternative to fossil, wind and solar.
    This is a legitimate polling organization, IMHO.

    Got at least 20 perfectly neutral, non-leading questions deep when I was abruptly asked if I supported Israel or Hamas (or "neither," or "both"). Hmm. This continued with a series of extremely leading questions, leaving out key information, about my Democratic congressperson had said or done, and "how concerned" each thing made me. Yeah. This is not an actual, credible poll.

    I received a text from www.reaserch-polls.com with an invitation code attached. After searching info about it and coming across this site, I decided to take the poll. 

    Reason? Several of the comments listed here suggest their own bias based solely on personal preferences.  

    Now, with that being said, it does appear as if each invite code has different questions. The majority of mine were NOT political. It further seems that the text for the poll comes from various different phone numbers. The one I received was: (267) 449-0953; PA area code.    

    Just for giggles, I tried using the same link (copy/pasted; I don't click on unknown sender links) on a different device with a different IP. It informed me that the poll had already been taken. So, the letter/number combo at the end of the site address and forward slash, is specific to you. 

    Most of my questions pertained to the following: how and if I watched news, local and national. What types of TV viewing did I do? i.e., movies, news, reality TV, dramas, comedy, etc. They also inquired about _how_ I watched these: i.e., listed different paid and free apps (ex: Hulu, HBO, PlutoTV, Tubi, Netflix) or if I had cable, antenna, satellite, etc.

    I was asked what type of devices I used while doing this, i.e., TV, lap/desktop computer, smartphone, tablet/ipad...
    They wanted to know if I was a "two-screen" type of watcher, i.e., did I watch the TV at the same time as looking at whatever device I have. 
    They inquired about how often I... Read more

    Received an unsolicited text starting it was from research polls sounding as if I had signed up or knew of their service. It was asking me for opinions about my state of residence and said it was not selling anything. First off, if it was affiliated with my state then it would have known I am on the states do not call or text list. So, it already pissed me off. Then, I promptly typed stop and it said I would not receive anything further because I was now on their list. Well, they should have paid attention that I was in another list in the first place. I clicked the link because I was curious and it asked me my name. It would not go forward without providing one so I made one up. Also did not give correct age. Then the questions it was asking me were about online shopping. What the hell does that have to do with state issues and legislation? I played along to see where it went. It started asking me about Biden and Trump and who I would vote for. Then, the interesting part was that it started asking me about mail in voting and how likely I would be to use it. (I am not likely at all). Then it started peppering me with facts about mail in voting and asking me again how likely I would be to use it almost as if it was trying to educate me that mail in voting was secure so I should do it that way. The FIRST thing that popped into my mind was that because I leaned toward Trump and had unfavorable opinions toward Biden, they wanted to convince me to use mail in voting so they could... Read more
