How the candidates did:
(Note that Newt Gingrich was not in the original poll and is not included in this follow-up.)
Nature of the Sample: National Poll of 1,018 Adults:
This survey of 1,018 adults was conducted on January 6th through January 10th, 2011. Adults 18 years of age and older residing in the continental United States were interviewed by telephone. Telephone numbers were selected based upon a list of telephone exchanges from throughout the nation. The exchanges were selected to ensure that each region was represented in proportion to its population. To increase coverage, this land-lin sample was supplemented by respondents reached through random dialing of cell phone numbers. The two samples were then combined. Results are statistically significant within ±3.0 percentage points. There are 827 registered voters. The results for this subset are statistically significant within ±3.5 percentage points. The error margin increases for cross-tabulations. The days when the poll was conducted include the Saturday when the tragic shooting occurred in Tucson, Arizona.Full story HERE.
