This TIME poll was conducted Oct. 3-6 among a national random sample of 1,053 likely U.S. voters by SRBI Public Affairs. The poll includes limited interviews with cell-phone respondents. Likely voters are identified on the basis of their registration status, self-reported likelihood to vote, interest in the campaign and previous voting record, unless a new registrant. Respondents who voted early are included. The margin of error for the entire sample is ±3 percentage points. The margin of error is higher for subgroups.
