About this Poll
The Mason-Dixon Florida Poll was conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research, Inc. of Washington, D.C. from July 19 through July 21, 2006. A total of 625 registered voters were interviewed statewide by telephone. All stated they vote regularly in state elections.

Those interviewed were selected by the random variation of the last four digits of telephone numbers. A cross-section of exchanges was utilized and quotas were assigned to reflect voter turn-out by county.

The margin for error, according to standards customarily used by statisticians, is no more than plus or minus 4 percentage points. This means that there is a 95 percent probability that the "true" figure would fall within that range if all voters were surveyed. The margin for error is higher for any subgroup, such as a regional or party grouping.

This section of the survey also includes and over-sampling of 400 likely Democratic primary voters and 400 likely Republican primary voters. Only the questions relative to the primary election races were asked of these additional voters, and not questions concerning the general election. The margin for error for each of these primary voter sub-samples is plus or minus 5%.
