About this Poll
The survey findings presented in this release are based on the results of
interviews conducted February 14-20, 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 unweighted responses of 592 Pennsylvania registered voters, including 256
Democrats, 278 Republicans, and 46 registered as Independent/Other. The sample of
registered voters was obtained from Voter Contact Services. Survey results were
weighted (age, gender, and party) 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 +/- 4.0 percentage points. The sample
error for registered Democrats is +/- 6.1 percentage points and for Republicans is +/-
+/- 5.9. 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.
