Election and Political Surveys
 
November 1, 2012 Pinellas County Races General Election Survey

Telephone survey of likely voters within 5 races in Pinellas County Florida for the November 6 general election, conducted on November 1st, 2012:

In this survey of likely voters conducted during the first week in November, we polled on 5 different competative races.


These results are scientifically weighted by political party, race and age.
The scientific results shown below each have their sample size and margin of error stated next to the question.


This poll is different from our recent polls in that we have in effect conducted two separate polls for each race: a poll of registered voters that uses a sample from only early voters who have turned in their ballots and then weights the results against the demographics of only early voters, and a second poll of registered voters that uses a sample from only those people who have not yet voted in the upcoming election and then weights the results against the demographics of all registered voters who have not yet voted.
