Survey of Voters and Nonvoters
These are findings from an Ipsos poll conducted from Nov. 7-19, 2012. For the survey, a sample of 1,686 Americans ages 18+ was interviewed online, including 516 who voted in the recent Presidential election and 1,170 who did not vote. The precision of the Ipsos online polls is measured using a credibility interval. In this case, the poll has a credibility interval of plus or minus 4.9 percentage points for voters and 3.3 percentage points for non-voters.
The data were weighted by gender, age and ethnicity to the post-election voter profile based on data from the Current Population Survey (CPS). Statistical margins of error are not applicable to online polls. All sample surveys and polls may be subject to other sources of error, including, but not limited to coverage error and measurement error. Figures marked by an asterisk (*) indicate a percentage value of greater than zero but less than one half of one per cent. Where figures do not sum to 100, this is due to the effects of rounding.
