October 15, 2012 Pinellas County Races General Election Survey
Telephone survey of likely voters within 6 races in Pinellas County Florida for the November 6 general election, conducted on October 15th, 2012:
In this survey of likely voters conducted during the third week in October, we polled on 6 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 all registered voters and then weights the results against the demographics of all registered voters, and a poll of active voters that uses a sample from only those people who have voted in an election within the last four years and then weights the results against the demographics of all active voters.
