The poll surveyed 4,211 registered voters in Nevada, Utah, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, New Hampshire, Ohio, Virginia, and Wisconsin. The margin of error plus or minus 4.5 points in Nevada, +/-5.7 in Utah and +/- 2.5 in rest of those battleground states.
