Are old people's opinions not valid?

It is the other way around. By basing the poll on using landlines, it is actually young people whose opinions will be underrepresented. In order to participate in this poll, one has to:

  1. Have a landline.

  2. Have the time available to drop everything at an instant's notice and participate in the poll at exactly the time the pollster's telephone call comes through.

Guess what? I personally definitely fail on #1 and probably fail on #2 depending on when the call comes in. Looks like I will not be participating in this poll.

The problem with this poll is that only a tiny and unrepresentative minority of people fulfill both of the above conditions. So this poll will not represent the opinions of the people of Hamilton.
