Methodology

Foster McCollum White Baydoun (FMW)B, a national public opinion polling and voter analytics consulting firm based in Michigan and representing the combined resources of Foster McCollum White & Associates (Troy Michigan) and Baydoun Consulting (Dearborn Michigan) conducted a telephone-automated polling random survey of Michigan registered and most likely November 2012 General election voters for Fox 2 News Detroit to determine their voting and issue preferences on the Presidential election, United States Senate and the six statewide ballot proposals and trust and knowledge issues regarding the Presidential campaign.

This twenty-two question automated poll survey was conducted on October 5, 2012

 The population surveyed consisted of a sample of traditional Michigan high participation registered voters and voters that fit Michigan General Election voting patterns. The majority of these voters have participated in a significant majority of the available primary and general election and odd year municipal and county elections in Michigan since their registration. Additionally, our call file does allow for random moderate and low participation voters to be included in the sample. Our call file was randomized to allow for the maximum range of participation and randomization.

An initial qualifying statement was read to respondents asking them to participate only if they were very likely to vote in the November General Election.

Twenty thousand five hundred and ninety (29,590) calls were placed, and 1,122 respondents fully participated in the survey. The response rate for this survey was 3.79%. 

Our list-based sample pool was pre-weighted for the gender, ethnicity and age demographics, geographical regions and political participation regions and the congressional districts in Michigan. For reporting purposes, we will focus our findings on the following issue-based categories:

  1. The baseline for Presidential General Election Preference.
  2. The baseline for United State Senate General Election Preference.
  3. The impact of the Presidential Debate on voters' preference.
  4. Economic, Domestic Affairs and Foreign Affairs issues and their impact on voters' preference on the Presidential candidates.
  5. The baseline for all six Michigan Statewide ballot proposals.

The margin of error for this total polling sample is 2.93% with a confidence level of 95%. Our polling study produced sub-populations within each of the surveyed election contest. Results within the sub-populations will be reported with respect to the individual cross-tab and sub-population group as it exist.
