Methodology

A total of 600 interviews were conducted among registered voters statewide in Indiana. Interviews were conducted February 21-26, 2022 with a margin of error of +/- 4.0%. The survey was conducted using a mixed-mode approach including cell phones, online, and traditional landline phone interview methods to create a balanced and representative collection of interviews. Stratified sampling methods, coupled with a listed sample method, were used to obtain the most representative reflection of statewide opinions.

A random sample of 600 Indiana voters out of an overall population of 4.7 million registered voters in Indiana yields a margin of error of 4% within a 95% confidence interval, the accepted confidence level among scientific researchers. This means researchers can be 95% confident that if the same survey were to be taken again, responses would fall within +/- 4% of what was found by this survey.
