Nature of the Sample: NBC News/WSJ/Marist Florida Poll of 1,134 Adults
This survey of 1,134 adults was conducted October 25th and October 26th, 2016 by The Marist Poll sponsored and funded in
partnership with NBC News and The Wall Street Journal . Adults 18 years of age and older residing in the state of Florida were
contacted on landline or mobile numbers and interviewed in English or Spanish by telephone using live interviewers. Landline
telephone numbers were randomly selected based upon a list of telephone exchanges from throughout the state of Florida from
ASDE Survey Sampler, Inc. The exchanges were selected to ensure that each region was represented in proportion to its
population. Respondents in the household were randomly selected by first asking for the youngest male. This landline sample
was combined with respondents reached through random dialing of mobile phone numbers from Survey Sampling International.
Assistance was provided by Luce Research for data collection. After the interviews were completed, the two samples were
combined and balanced to reflect the 2013 American Community Survey 5-year estimates for age, gender, income, and region,
except for race, which is from the 2010 Census. Results are statistically significant within ± 2.9 percentage points. There are
990 registered voters. The results for this subset are statistically significant within ± 3.1 percentage points. There are 779 likely
voters defined by a probability turnout model which determines the likelihood respondents will participate in the 2016
Presidential Election based upon their chance of vote, interest in the election, and past election participation. The results for this
subset are statistically significant within ±3.5 percentage points. The error margin was not adjusted for sample weights and
increases for cross-tabulations.
