About this Poll
The Research 2000 Illinois Poll was conducted from March 6 through March 8, 2006. A total of 800 likely voters who vote regularly in state elections were interviewed statewide by telephone.

Those interviewed were selected by the random variation of the last four digits of telephone numbers. A cross-section of exchanges were utilized in order to ensure an accurate reflection of the state. Quotas were assigned to reflect the voter registration of distribution by county.

The margin for error, according to standards customarily used by statisticians, is no more than plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. This means that there is a 95 percent probability that the "true" figure would fall within that range if the entire population were sampled. The margin for error is higher for any subgroup, such as for gender or party affiliation.

The sample consisted of 422 women (52.8%) and 378 men (47.2%). Three hundred and twenty-three (40.4%) of the sample were Democrats, 247 (30.9%) were Republicans, and 230 (28.8%) were independents.
