The Fox News Poll is conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R). The poll is based on live telephone interviews with a national sample of 911 registered voters, and was conducted February 7-9, 2011 in the evenings.
Landline and cell phone telephone numbers were randomly selected for inclusion in the survey using a probability proportionate to size method, which means that phone numbers for each state are proportional to the number of voters in each state.
Results based on the full sample have a margin of error of ± 3%. Results among subgroups have larger sampling errors, including: Democrats (n = 389) ± 5%; Republicans (n = 354) ± 5%; Independents (n = 147) ± 8%.
