This national poll was conducted September 20-21, 2022 in partnership with Emerson College Polling. The sample consisted of very likely voters, n=1,368, with a Credibility Interval (CI) similar to a poll’s margin of error (MOE) of +/- 2.56 percentage points. The data sets were weighted by gender, age, education, region, party affiliation, and race/ethnicity based on 2022 turnout modeling. It is important to remember that subsets based on gender, age, education, and race/ethnicity carry with them higher margins of error, as the sample size is reduced. Data was collected using an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system of landlines and an online panel.
