Who do they actually get their information from for these polls? Every household I know has a home computer. Most of us have at least 2. I really question the validity of some of these polls.

I question the validity of these polls. From my personal experience white areas have more households with internet, black neighborhoods are less connected

I know plenty of people who don't even have a land line or cellphone, let alone a computer. Then again, I know plenty of people with more than one computer. WV seems to be "the jetsons meet the flintstones" when it comes to technology

Possums, most in your area would not even know where to begin to operate a computer. Until the late 1970's FHA would not even write loans for homes in WV if they contained a garbage disposal. This was because of the low mentality of the people in the area and the accidents they were having with them. The inbreeding there has contributed to a much lower level of intelligence. Oh I know, many will say,"I don't sleep with anyone in my family." Well possums, like it or not you do. This has been going on for a very long time in the hills and you are probably kin to more than you realize. Up until the late 60's most of rural WV telephone was still on the "party line". Indoor plumbing has only been the norm there for a few decades and many areas still depend upon outhouses. Let me see now, one could screw Meemaw,tell it on the party line for all in the hollar to hear and run to the outhouse with the computer. What a lovely picture of the hillbillies in WV!!!!! TaTa for now Lady of Quality Hmmm, I'm hearing Dueling Banjos again.
