SSRS fielded a survey of likely voters in Virginia (persons living in the State who are registered to vote and said they are almost certain or very likely to vote in the next election). Sample was attained from the registered voter list for Virginia. These data were weighted to reflect the voter registration population of Virginia ages 18 years of age and older. The weighting process takes into account the disproportionate probabilities of household and respondent selection due to the number of landlines or cellphones answered by respondents and their households. Following application of the above weights, the sample is post-stratified and balanced by key demographics such as age, race, sex, education, marital status, and party affiliation. The sample is also weighted to reflect the distribution of phone usage for registered voters of Virginia, meaning the proportion of those who are cell phone only, landline only, and mixed users. This topline is provided by SSRS.

The margin of error for the survey is +/- 4.6% for the full sample.

Q29. In what county in the state of Virginia do you live?
