Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
These are annecdotes, but could point towards inexpensive and accurate polling over the phone being a thing of the past. Door to door would still probably work, but I don't think anyone does that anymore.

True enough: there was a subject on TV last week on French pollsters. To a large extent, they no longer do phone calls but run their polls over the net. Their panel members must fill a questionnaire to sort them out by age, gender, occupation etc... and they are regularly solicited by email, which is easier to ignore if you don't feel like filling the web form out (poll companies like Harris also offer goodies and a contest to lure people to answer the poll).
