Washington Post-ABC News Poll

This Washington Post-ABC News poll was conducted by telephone Jan. 13-16, 2011, among a random national sample of 1,053 adults including users of both conventional and cellular phones. Also included are additional interviews with randomly selected African Americans, for a total of 133 black respondents. These added interviews (commonly referred to as an "oversample") were completed to ensure there were enough respondents for separate analysis; the group is not over-represented in the reported results. The results from the full survey have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. Sampling, data collection and tabulation by TNS of Horsham, Pa.
