How polling works?

12 Oct
I had a pollster call today..and it was kind of funny.
HER: If the election was held today, who would you vote for? Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump?
ME: I’d vote for Gary Johnson.
HER: But what if the only two people on the ballot were Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump? Which one would you choose?
ME: But Gary Johnson is on the ballot, in all 50 states actually, so I’d vote for him.
HER: You don’t understand.
ME: No you don’t understand.
HER: Thank you for your time.
So I guess my response won’t be included in that poll…you think?
