About this Poll

Blum & Weprin Associates Inc. of New York conducted the random telephone poll of 1,482 registered voters Feb. 9-Feb 15. It has an error margin of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

In 19 out of 20 cases, poll responses probably would differ by no more than that amount in either direction, even if all Texas adults in households with telephones were interviewed. Respondents were offered the questionnaire in Spanish.

An error margin of 3 percentage points means that each response could vary by a total of six points. For instance, if 40 percent of respondents chose a certain candidate, the result could range from 37 percent to 43 percent.

Of those polled, 301 say they are likely to vote in the Democratic primary. The error margin for those voters' responses is 5.5 percentage points.
Differences in how questions are worded or what order they are asked in can cause results to vary.
