Survey by Associated Press. Methodology: Conducted by AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, March 8 - March 27, 2017 and based on 2,036 telephone and online interviews. Sample: National adult. 1702 respondents were interviewed online, and 334 by telephone. Interviews were conducted both online using a self-administered design and by telephone using live interviewers. All interviews were conducted among participants in AmeriSpeak, a probability-based panel designed to be representative of the national US adult population run by NORC at the University of Chicago. Panel participants without Internet access were interviewed via telephone by professional interviewers under the direction of NORC. NORC's AmeriSpeak Panel provides a representative panel of civilian, non-institutional adults (age 18 and over) living in the United States. [USAP.052417N.R09DA] (View Citation)
