Today's Star Tribune Minnesota Poll findings are based on 565 land-line and 241 cellphone interviews conducted May 2-5 with a representative sample of Minnesota adults. Interviews were conducted under the direction of Princeton Survey Research Associates International.
Results of a poll based on 806 interviews will vary by no more than 4.7 percentage points, plus or minus, from the overall population 95 times out of 100.
The self-identified party affiliation of the random sample is 33 percent Democrat, 23 percent Republican and 37 percent independent. The remaining 7 percent said they were members of another party, no party or declined to answer.
Sampling error does not take into account other sources of variation inherent in public opinion surveys, such as nonresponse, question wording, context effects or news events. Readers can e-mail questions to email@example.com.
