Anderson Robbins Research (D) / Shaw & Company Research (R)

N = 1,016 registered voters (506 landline, 510 cellphone)

Interviews Conducted:
November 16-19, 2015

All results are for release after 9:00 A.M. ET Sunday, November 22, 2015.
Methodology
The Fox News Poll is conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and
Shaw & Company Research (R). The poll was conducted by telephone with live interviewers
November 16-19, 2015 among a random national sample of 1,016 registered voters (RV).
Results based on the full sample have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three
percentage points.
Landline and cellphone telephone numbers were randomly selected for inclusion in the survey
using a probability proportionate to size method, which means that phone numbers for each state
are proportional to the number of voters in each state.
Results are of registered voters, unless otherwise noted.
An asterisk (*) is used for percentages of less than one-half percent.
A dash (-) represents a value of zero.
Some percentages may not add to 100% due to rounding.
Results from Fox News polls before February 2011 were conducted by Opinion Dynamics Corp.
