RE: Data for Survey of 500 Likely Voters in California’s Open Primary
Date: April 11, 2012
On April 5, 2012 Pulse Opinion Research conducted a survey of 500 Likely Voters in California’s Open Primary.
The margin of sampling error for the full sample is +/- 4.5 % percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. This means that an identical survey conducted under the same circumstances would generate a result within the margin of sampling error 19 times out of 20.
There are other potential sources of error in any survey including question wording. Pulse Opinion Research did not develop the questions or subject matter for this survey but may have suggested edits.
The survey was conducted using an established automated polling methodology. Calls were placed to randomly-selected phone numbers through a process that insures appropriate geographic representation. After the calls are completed, the raw data is processed through a weighting program to insure that the sample reflects the overall population in terms of age, race, gender, political party, and other factors. The processing step is required because different segments of the population answer the phone in different ways. For example, women answer the phone more than men, older people are home more and answer more than younger people, and rural residents typically answer the phone more frequently than urban residents.
The population targets were based upon census bureau data, a series of screening questions to determine likely voters, and other factors. Pulse Opinion Research determines its partisan weighting targets through a dynamic weighting system that takes into account voting history, national trends, and recent polling.

Note from Orly
while in OC Register survey some paid or unpaid obots or GOP RINO puppets and operatives could vote multiple times, in this survey voters could vote only once. This survey shows me increasing the lead over all other GOP candidates. The number of “not sure” voters is going down. For primary I just have to be in top 2 with Diane Feinstein.
Please, make it go viral. we can make it and we can win the primary and advance to the general election
