Poll Demographics

About this Poll
The survey was administered by telephone, by the Washington Survey Research Center at the UW, based on a randomly selected list of phone numbers using a publicly available list of registered voters. The survey was in the field from May 3 – May 28, 2010. A total of 1,695 registered voters throughout the state of Washington were interviewed, yielding a 2.3% margin of error. Percentages may not add up to 100% due to rounding.

Previously we released the results of the first 1,252 completed surveys, as of May 23, 2010. However we continued to conduct our poll the week of May 24-28, and collected and additional 443 interviews in the final week. The results here draw upon the entire overall sample of 1,695, and are broken out by date.

Second, we focus on whether or not the respondent was interviewed before or after May 24th. On Monday May 24th most major news outlets in Washington state and also nationally, reported widely that Dino Rossi would in fact run for U.S. Senate, which elevated him to the position of official candidate. We may expect to see a bump in Rossi numbers if we focus just on the interviews conducted May 24 – 28 when he received high news attention. However, readers should keep in mind that because we also split sample the Rossi and generic Republican question, the effective sample in the final week is just 222/221 for each question of the 443 interviews conducted, raising the margin of error.
