 This poll was conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research, Inc. ofWashington, D.C. from October 11 through October 13, 2010. A totalof 625 registered Vermont voters were interviewed statewide bytelephone. All indicated they were likely to vote in the Novembergeneral election.Those interviewed were selected by the random variation of the lastfour digits of telephone numbers. A cross-section of exchanges wasutilized in order to ensure an accurate reflection of the state.Quotas were assigned to reflect the voter turn-out by county.The margin for error, according to standards customarily used bystatisticians, is no more than plus or minus 4 percentage points.This means that there is a 95 percent probability that the "true"figure would fall within that range if the entire population weresampled. The margin for error is higher for any subgroup, such as aregional or gender grouping.------------------------------------------------------------------
