This is a scam! I have been receiving this call about a 30-second "survey" for weeks under multiple numbers. They promise a two-day cruise for participating. The first time I thought it might be a legit survey, but they ask questions where they assume that people are only going to respond with one answer, so if you answer anything else, their system doesn't understand the response. They are attempting to phish info out of people who think they'll get a cruise from a stranger for no work. (Come on, and 2 days? Makes no sense.) Stay away!

I called back and got a recorded message. It is a survey. They say "press 2 or simply hang up" to opt out. Not sure if this works tho. I pressed two then got the same message seconds after. Where's the effing "thank you?" and verification that I had opted out?

The bastards!!
Sorry if my potty mouth offends I'm a Brit :)

As with all unknown or unidentified callers, assume it is a scam/survey/phishing attempt. Always reject or hang up if you don't know the person or recognize the number. Any reputable caller will leave a message. Otherwise, don't even waste a second of your time.

Answered the questions on the survey and hung up before they could transfer me to ask me my credit card number or anything hoping that it would remove me from the list. Already listed on the National DNC and got another call from it again today.

they called me, said something about Politico Debt survey and I won a 2 day cruise to the bahamas and it would only take 30 seconds. I hung up after it said "DO NOT HANG UP, PLEASE REMAIN ON THE LINE...." it sounded too good to be true.
