Taking a Phone Poll in Iowa

Because so many candidates announced their intentions very early for the 2016 presidential election, the run-up to the Iowa caucuses has taken a particularly long time. It’s got to be a hard, thankless job to call voters in Iowa to ask about their political opinions. Those folks have been bothered for months already. Seth Myers tried calling a few folks -probably a lot more than made it into the final mix- to see how they’re holding up under the onslaught.

He did find a few who were not only willing to talk, but were pretty funny. The funniest of all was his own mother. The Iowa caucus will be held on Monday, February first. Once that’s done, the time between other states’ primaries will be shorter and less scrutinized. (via Uproxx)
