For each question in the poll the following information is given. First, the text of the question. Second, frequency tables. There are two important percentage columns in the frequency tables. The column titled "Percent" is the percentage out of all respondents for that answer. In this column people who refused to answer or said they did not know the answer are included in the total for which this percentage is calculated. The column "Valid Percent" is a percentage based on the respondents who had an opinion about the question; that total excludes the people who had no opinion or did not answer the question.
Following the frequency tables is the third part for each question, the crosstabs tables. These are done with two opinion questions and a number of demographics.
