Washington Post Poll: Amtrak Subsidy Support Strong
Monday, Aug. 5, 2002
The latest Washington Post poll is based on telephone interviews with 1,012 randomly selected adults nationwide and was conducted July 26 - 30, 2002. The margin of sampling error for overall results is plus or minus 3 percentage points, and somewhat higher for subgroups. Sampling error is only one of many potential sources of error in this or any other public opinion poll. Interviewing was conducted byICR/ International Communications Research of Media, Pa.
