Nature of the Sample: NBC News/WSJ/Marist North Carolina Poll of 1,136 Adults
This survey of 1,136 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 North Carolina 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 North Carolina 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 cell 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 1,018 registered voters. The results for this subset are statistically
significant within ±3.1 percentage points. There are 780 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.
