Nature of the Sample: NBC News/WSJ/Marist Georgia Poll of 1,114 Adults

This survey of 1,114 adults was conducted September 6th through September 8th, 2016 by The Marist
Poll sponsored and funded in partnership with NBC News and The Wall Street Journal. Adults 18 years of
age and older residing in the state of Georgia were contacted on landline or mobile numbers and
interviewed in English or Spanish by telephone using live interviewers. Landline telephone numbers were
randomly selected based upon a list of telephone exchanges from throughout the state of Georgia from
ASDE Survey Sampler, Inc. The exchanges were selected to ensure that each region was represented in
proportion to its population. Respondents in the household were randomly selected by first asking for the
youngest male. This landline sample was combined with respondents reached through random dialing of
mobile phone numbers from Survey Sampling International. Assistance was provided by Luce Research
for data collection. After the interviews were completed, the two samples were combined and balanced to
reflect the 2013 American Community Survey 5-year estimates for age, gender, income, and region,
except for race, which is from the 2010 Census. Results are statistically significant within ±2.9 percentage
points. There are 913 registered voters. The results for this subset are statistically significant within ±3.2
percentage points. There are 625 likely voters defined by a probability turnout model which determines
the likelihood respondents will participate in the 2016 Presidential Election based upon their chance of
vote, interest in the election, and past election participation. The results for this subset are statistically
significant within ±3.9 percentage points. The error margin was not adjusted for sample weights and
increases for cross-tabulations
