Thank you for that information, Peter.

I played around with the tool, and I have a much better understanding of how they come up with the numbers. It seems to me that the greatest danger in this process would be faulty selection of the sample, rather than just the number of people contacted.

Some people, like myself, absolutely refuse to participate in polls. A long time ago, I decided that it's pretty stupid to give information to a stranger who just happens to call me on the phone.

Anyway, techniques aside, do you believe the results of this poll?
