About this Poll
The survey findings presented in this release are based on the results of
interviews conducted March 20-25, 2012. The interviews were conducted at the
Center for Opinion Research at Franklin & Marshall College under the direction of
the poll’s Director Dr. G. Terry Madonna, Head Methodologist Berwood Yost, and
Senior Project Manager Angela Knittle. The data included in this release represent
the responses of 505 Pennsylvania Republican registered voters. The sample of
registered voters was obtained from Voter Contact Services. Survey results were
weighted (age and gender) using an iterative weighting algorithm to reflect the
known distribution of those characteristics as reported by the Pennsylvania
Department of State.
The sample error for this survey is +/- 4.2 percentage points. In addition to
sampling error, this poll is also subject to other sources of non-sampling error.
Generally speaking, two sources of error concern researchers most. Non-response
bias is created when selected participants either choose not to participate in the
survey or are unavailable for interviewing. Response errors are the product of the
question and answer process. Surveys that rely on self-reported behaviors and
attitudes are susceptible to biases related to the way respondents process and respond
to survey questions.
