So… that W$J that has everyone wringing their hands? You know the one that found that 50% of voters cited inflation as the main issue they wanted the federal government to address and that Republicans have a 17-point advantage over Democrats — 47% to 30% — on which party is better able to handle inflation, and so the DEMS ARE DOOMED!!1!
(No link as it is the W$J behind a paywall):
The Wall Street Journal poll was conducted by the firms Impact Research and Fabrizio, Lee & Associates, who surveyed 1,500 respondents, drawn from a list of known, registered voters, from March 2-7. Half the respondents were interviewed on their cellphones. One-quarter were reached by text on their cellphones and completed an internet survey. One-quarter of respondents were interviewed by landline phone. The margin of error for the full sample was plus or minus 2.5 percentage points.
What exactly is a list of known, registered voters? As for the break-down by percentage, you can ask your own questions (I cannot even imagine the 50% who answered an unknown caller! or the 25% who replied to an unknown text!), but this sounds like the respondents were self-sorting, W$J readers.
