METHODOLOGY
A total of 606 adults were interviewed by telephone nationwide by live interviewers calling both landline and cell phones. All
respondents were asked questions concerning basic demographics, and the entire sample was weighted to reflect national Census
figures for gender, race, age, education, region of country, and telephone usage. Among the entire sample, 33% described
themselves as Democrats, 22% described themselves as Republicans, and 45% described themselves as Independents or
members of another party
Crosstabs on the following pages only include results for subgroups with enough unweighted cases to produce a sampling error
of +/- 8.5 percentage points or less. Some subgroups represent too small a share of the national population to produce crosstabs
with an acceptable sampling error. Interviews were conducted among these subgroups, but results for groups with a sampling
error larger than +/-8.5 percentage points are not displayed and instead are denoted with "N/A".
