Nature of the Sample: NBC News/WSJ/Marist New Hampshire Poll of 1,108 Adults

This survey of 1,108 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 New Hampshire 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 New Hampshire
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, race, and region. Results are statistically significant within ±2.9 percentage points. There
are 987 registered voters. The results for this subset are statistically significant within ±3.1 percentage
points. There are 737 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
±3.6 percentage points. The error margin was not adjusted for sample weights and increases for crosstabulations.
