									                    About the Poll
The Washington Poll is a non-partisan, academic survey research project
sponsored the University of Washington Department of Political Science.
Dr. Matt Barreto at the University of Washington and Dr. Todd Donovan at
Western Washington University are the co-principal investigators of the
February 2008 Washington Poll.
The survey was administered by telephone, by Pacific Market Research, in
Renton, WA, based on a randomly selected list of phone numbers using a
list of registered voters. The February 2008 survey is a panel survey in
which the same participants who were randomly selected in October 2007,
were called back in February 2008. The current survey was in the field from
February 7 – 18, 2008. A total of 300 registered voters throughout the state
of Washington were interviewed, yielding in a 5.6% margin of error.
Percentages may not add up to 100% due to rounding.


Additional results and cross-tabulations will be released each day, so
please check back for updates.
