This explains what a voodoo poll is if you did not know already-
These polls are all over the media here in Australia. I have seen them in 3 large newspapers. The Herald-Sun in Melbourne has them daily. Channel 9 news (most watched in Australia) has them daily.
I have heard pundits and politicians using these results as part of their arguments for or against a proposition (I have no cite though).
Insofar as it’s the sort of thing that newspapers, particularly tabloid ones, and television shows often do, yes. However, as far as I can see, it’s usually a way for the poll originator to make money from the 'phone calls rather than something done with any serious intent.
