We would like to thank the vendors who took the time to meet with us and discuss their sample methodologies. Their input was tremendously helpful to this study. We would also like to thank Mike Brick, Nancy Mathiowetz, Jon Cohen and Sarah Cho, each of whom was very helpful in the early phases of this research. While their contributions were invaluable, Pew Research Center is solely responsible for the interpretation and reporting of the data.
