Florida Surveys
 
August 2013 Florida Pasco County General Survey

Telephone survey of registered voters within Florida Pasco County, conducted on August 1st and 2nd, 2013:

In our August Florida Pasco County poll, we asked questions about legalizing marijuana use, gay marriage, the 2014 race for Governor, stand your ground laws and Pasco County's tax collector.

This poll used the registered voter lists supplied by the state of Florida as of July 3rd, 2013. The sample of voters that were called included random samples of registered voters within Florida Pasco County.

The poll was conducted by an automated phone call polling system. The results were then weighted to account for proportional differences between the respondents' demographics and the demographics of the registered voter population within Pasco County. The demographics used were: party, race and age.

Total people polled: 875

These results were scientifically weighted by political party, race and age.
Margin of error: 3.3% at a 95% confidence level


There were also several other polls conducted at the same time as this poll within several other areas, they are linked here,
