About the poll:

This poll was conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research, Inc. of Jacksonville, Florida from April 15 through April 18. A total of 625 registered Minnesota voters were interviewed statewide by telephone.  
 
Those interviewed on land-lines were selected by the random variation of the last four digits of telephone numbers.  A cross-section of exchanges was utilized in order to ensure an accurate reflection of the state. Those interviewed on cell phones were selected from a list of working cell phone numbers.  Quotas were assigned to reflect voter registration by county.
 
The margin for error, according to standards customarily used by statisticians, is no more than ± 4 percentage points.  This means that there is a 95 percent probability that the "true" figure would fall within that range if all adults were surveyed.  The margin for error is higher for any subgroup, such as a gender or age grouping.
