Loras College Statewide Survey

December 2015

Field Dates: December 7-10, 2015
Completed Surveys: 1000

(501 likely Democratic voters, 499 likely Republican voters)

Margin of Error: +/- 3.1% for complete sample and +/- 4.4 % for Democratic and Republican Subsamples
Note on Methodology: The Loras College Poll surveyed statewide 1,000 likely 2016 caucus participants. All results calculated at a 95% confidence
interval. Both subsamples of party caucus participants include no-party registrants who passed likely voter screen (see below).
 Survey conducted with a random sample of registered voters (phone numbers drawn from official Iowa Secretary of State official voter file) who
voted in either the 2012 or 2014 general election or who had registered since December 1, 2014.
 Likely caucus voter was defined as those indicating they were “definitely or very likely” to vote in the 2016 Iowa Caucus. Those indicating they
were “somewhat likely” were subjected to further screen question regarding their general interest in politics. Only those indicating they were
“very interested” in politics were then accepted within the sample as a likely caucus voter.

 The statewide sample was balanced for gender and age to approximate past caucus entrance polling, and divided evenly across
Iowa’s four congressional districts.
 Survey included both landlines and cell phones (with an approximate 70-30 split).
 The survey was conducted using live operator interviews through a contracted professional call center.

Script development and methodology used for the survey received input from Republican campaign consultant Brian Dumas and Democratic
campaign consultant Dave Heller.
