Calling cellphones

The highlight from a Pew Research Center study: “45% of American adults own smartphones. “They are particularly popular with young adults and those living in relatively higher income households; 66% of those ages 18-29 own smartphones, and 68% of those living in households earning $75,000 also own them.”

One of the distinguishing characteristics of the Elon University Poll is that, unlike some other pollsters, we use humans to do the polling and we call cellphones. Some other polling firms use computerized calls — a.k.a. robocalls. Robocalls use automated phone calls and ask respondents to push buttons on their phones . Federal law prohibits the use of computer dialing to cellphones.
