The survey of 1,200 Registered Voters was conducted by Scott Rasmussen using a mixed mode approach from March 25-27. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Most respondents were contacted online or via text while 269 were contacted using automated phone polling techniques. Online respondents were selected from a list of Registered Voters and through a process of Random Digital Engagement. Certain quotas were applied, and the sample was lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, and political party to reasonably reflect the nation’s population of Registered Voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.
