2010 Massachusetts General

Election Exit Poll

On November 2nd, 2010, UMass students sampled voters leaving their polling places at 18 randomly selected voting precincts throughout the state of Massachusetts. This exit poll is directed by Professor Brian Schaffner and was designed and conducted by students in his honors class “Political Polling and Survey Research.”

Detailed Crosstabs for the vote for governor are now available here.
