Methodology
Foster McCollum White Baydoun (FMW)B, a national public opinion polling and voter analytics consulting firm based in Michigan and representing the combined resources of Foster McCollum White & Associates (Troy Michigan) and Baydoun Consulting (Dearborn Michigan) conducted a telephone-automated polling random survey of Michigan registered and most likely August 2012 primary election voters in the 14th congressional district to determine their voting and issue preferences on the Democratic Congressional nomination, the impact of losing congressional representation from Detroit and the impact of losing African American or minority congressional representation. This nine question automated poll survey was conducted on the evening of July 23, 2012 The population surveyed consisted of a sample of traditional Michigan high participation registered voters and voters that fit Michigan Primary election voting patterns. The majority of these voters have participated in a significant majority of the available primary and general election and odd year municipal and county elections in Michigan since their registration. Additionally, our call file does allow for random moderate and low participation voters to be included in the sample. Our call file was randomized to allow for the maximum range of participation and randomization. An initial qualifying statement was read to respondents asking them to participate only if they were very likely to vote in the August Primary Election. Twenty-one thousand three hundred and eighty-two (21,382) calls were placed, and 685 respondents fully participated in the survey. The response rate for this survey was 3.20%. Our list-based sample pool was pre-weighted to the geographical regions and political participation regions and the congressional districts in Michigan. For reporting purposes, we will focus our findings on the following issue-based categories: A. The baseline for 14th congressional district Democratic primary nomination preference. B. The impact of potentially losing congressional representation from the City of Detroit. C. The impact of potentially losing African American or minority congressional representation from Michigan. The margin of error for this polling sample is 3.74% with a confidence level of 95%. Our polling study produced sub-populations within each of the surveyed election contest. Results within the sub-populations will be reported with respect to the individual cross-tab and subpopulation group as it exist.

Data Analysis Statement
The data has been separated analytically into cross tabulation results that are statistically significant with respect to Michigan Primary election cycle and the new 14th Congressional District. Any sectional analysis within the aforementioned categories can be useful when inferring strengths and weaknesses and possible strategy. For the assessment of individual cross tabulation categories, we use a correlation coefficient model based on the Pearson r correlation, also called linear or product- moment correlation. Pearson correlation (hereafter called correlation), assumes that the two variables are measured on at least interval scales and it determines the extent to which values of the two variables are "proportional" to each other. The value of correlation (i.e., correlation coefficient) does not depend on the specific measurement units used. Our proportional model for correlating the statistical relevance of a geographical region, age grouping or congressional district is based on the random proportionality of our respondent pool to the specific proportionality of the group’s weight to the aggregate model. The correlation coefficient (r) represents the linear relationship between these two variables (aggregate and cross tabular category). The aggregate 14th Congressional District sample size of 685 respondents has a 3.74% margin of error, any review of the polling report can allow for the statistical relationship between the aggregate and cross tabulation margin of error for the reported clusters. The poll sample was pre weighted for gender and ethnicity based upon Foster McCollum White Baydoun Predictive Voter Behavior Analysis Model for historic primary election participation demographics throughout Wayne County and the new 14th Congressional district represented municipalities. This poll was commissioned by Fox 2 News Detroit and conducted by Foster McCollum White Baydoun and not commissioned on behalf of or by any candidate or political organization. We strive to adhere to the principles and standards of the National Council on Public Polls in the gathering and reporting of polling data.

Demographic Sample Report
Our polling sample was very consistent with the projected voter demographic considerations and predictive voter behavior analysis model for a Michigan 14th Congressional District August Primary election. We have no significant variance items to report. Our polling sample call file was weighted for Michigan’s most likely voter universe for the Michigan primary election cycle and included consideration for moderate and low participation history voters. We believe our respondent universe is reflective of voters that are highly aware and interested in participating in the August Primary election. We are reporting the data un-weighted to the demographic variances as to maintain consistency with the interest level of 14th Congressional District voters for the polling study.
