Of the more than 3.94 million people currently living in Oklahoma, 2.51 million are on
Facebook and 1.36 million are Republicans. The Western Journal’s political survey targeted
these 1.47 million Republicans in Oklahoma.

The poll consisted of three different audiences: people affiliated with the Republican Party,
people who identified as conservative, and people who were both affiliated with the Republican
Party and also identified themselves as conservative.

The audience demographic consisted of fluent English speakers of all genders who were at
least 18 years old.

The information, comments and visits from The Western Journal’s millions of Facebook
followers allow The Western Journal to invite likely gubernatorial primary voting Facebook
registrants in Oklahoma, and other states nationwide, to participate in the surveys we conduct
with a high confidence rate that the voters we asked to respond, will actually vote. More
importantly, the makeup of those who respond to The Western Journal’s surveys indicates the
population of registered voters that will turn out and vote in the primary.

Each respondent’s entries reported in the article are supported by a name, email address and
zip code and can be matched against voter file and other databases available to confirm voter
eligibility in the state, districts and precincts targeted in this survey. Responses were
statistically balanced using Facebook’s Artificial Intelligence tools and programs available to
The Western Journal for this program, some of which are proprietary due to our scale and
reputation.
