Quarterly Survey – December 2017

The following results are based on 600 completed interviews among a statewide random sample of adults in New Hampshire. Of the 600 interviews, 535 interviews were among registered voters (170 Republicans, 160 Democrats, and 205 undeclared voters). The interviews were conducted December 19 through 22, 2017.

The theoretical margin of error for the total sample of 600 is plus or minus 4 percentage points, 95% of the time, on questions where opinion is evenly split. The theoretical margin of error for the sample of 535 registered voters is plus or minus 4.2 percentage points, 95% of the time, on questions where opinion is evenly split.
