Methodology: Ipsos poll conducted March 16-18, 2012. For the survey, a national sample of 2,013 adults aged 18 and older from Ipsos’ U.S. online panel were interviewed online, including 555 Democrats, 570 Republicans, 479 Independents and 180 not registered to vote. Weighting was then employed to balance demographics and ensure that the sample’s composition reflects that of the U.S. adult population according to Census data and to provide results intended to approximate the sample universe. A survey with an unweighted probability sample of this size, the results are considered accurate within ±2.18 percentage points when it comes to the entire sample 19 times out of 20, of what they would have been had the entire population of adults aged 18 and older in the U.S. had been polled. All sample surveys and polls may be subject to other sources of error, including, but not limited to coverage error, and measurement error.
