Dialog Poll: Bayit Yehudi 13 seats National camp 67
Dr. Aaron Lerner - IMRA 25 December 2012
A technical note: Refreshing to see the statistics for percent agreed to
participate in the poll. The figure is similar to figures I have seen
before. It reminds us, however, that there is the issue if the propensity
to be willing to participate in a poll at a given time is somehow correlated
to choice of party - thus impacting that results. And if one is already
willing to share surch information - how about the percentage of respondents
who did not say what party they would vote for?
Poll carried out 23-24 December - by Dialogue under the supervision of
statistics professor and pollster Camil Fuchs of a representative sample of
491 adult Israelis (including Israeli Arabs). 30% of those called agreed to
participate in the poll. Statistical error +/- 4.3 percentage points.
