Conservative senator Cory Bernardi has defended targeting millions of homes with robo-calls urging people to vote 'no' in the same-sex marriage postal survey.

But he has simultaneously attacked as an invasion of privacy bulk text messages sent out by marriage equality advocates urging Australians to vote 'yes'.

"Taking the poll of an electorate or doing some market research is a time- honoured political technique and that's exactly what we're doing," Senator Bernardi told Sky News today.
