September 25, 2016

Contact: Doug Kaplan, 407-242-1870


Executive Summary
Gravis Marketing, a nonpartisan research firm, in conjunction with Breitbart News Network, conducted a
random survey of 850 registered voters across Ohio. The poll was conducted on September 22nd and 23rd
and has a margin of error of 3.4% at the 95% confidence level. The total may not round to 100%
because of rounding. The poll was conducted using automated telephone calls and weighted by voting
patterns.
Founded in 2005 by conservative icon Andrew Breitbart, Breitbart News Network is the biggest source of
breaking news and analysis, thought-leading commentary, and original reporting curated and written
specifically for the new generation of independent and conservative thinkers.
Known for hard hitting, no hold-barred journalism along with world-class aggregation, Breitbart news is
growing rapidly. The company recently added bureaus in London, Texas, and California, and is currently
in the process of launching additional bureaus and verticals.
