My robo-polling call from SurveyUSA

I thought I had made my home (landline) phone number unlisted, but I just got a robo-call from SurveyUSA. They are doing polling for the local (DC-area) CBS affiliate WUSA 9. The poll was centered around the '08 presidential election, and some of the pairings were interesting (including Al Franken versus Sean Hannity).
After asking the basics like age, sex, whether I'm registered to vote or not, they went into a series of comparisons based off a single possible Democratic candidate versus between two and three different possible GOP candidates. The pairings were as follows:
If the Democratic nominee were Hillary Clinton, would you vote for ...
Hillary Clinton or Bill Frist
Hillary Clinton or Sam Brownback
Hillary Clinton or Mike Huckabee
If the Democratic nominee were Al Gore, would you vote for ...
Al Gore or Bill Frist
Al Gore or Sam Brownback
Al Gore or Mike Huckabee
If the Democratic nominee were John Kerry, would you vote for ...
John Kerry or John McCain
John Kerry or Rudy Guiliani
If the Democratic nominee were Barack Obama, would you vote for ...
Barack Obama or John McCain
Barack Obama or Rudy Guiliani
Are you, pro-life or pro-choice?
Does anyone in your household own a gun?
Does anyone in your household belong to a labor union?
If the Democratic nominee were Al Franken and the Republican nominee were Sean Hannity, who would you vote for?
If the Democratic nominee were Oprah Winfrey and the Republican nominee were Lou Dobbs, who would you vote for?
Hope this helps some political junkie, somewhere in the vast expanse of blog-land.
