Cell Phones and Polling

Cell phones have been causing problems for pollsters for years.  Initially they could not get people's numbers and now the question is what percentage of users should they contact, should they count cell users as ones without land lines and are cell only users more likely to vote one way or the other (turns out they are).  This is a fascinating article and shows that even the top pollsters are still trying to figure it out.
