Methodology: Fleming & Associates of Cumberland, Rhode Island, conducted the survey of 405 likely Rhode Island Democratic primary voters on behalf of WPRI 12 and Roger Williams University. Additional interviews were conducted to generate the subsample of 252 likely Democratic primary voters in Rhode Island's 2nd Congressional District.

The cellphone (90%) and landline (10%) interview poll was conducted Sunday, Aug. 7, through Wednesday, Aug. 10, with registered voters who said they were very likely (74%), somewhat likely (15%) or 50-50 (11%) to vote in the Democratic primary on Sept. 13.

The survey has an overall margin of sampling error of plus or minus approximately 4.9 percentage points, but the margin of error is slightly lower (approximately 4.0 percentage points) for responses selected by very high or very low percentages of the total sample.

For the subsample of 252 voters in the 2nd Congressional District, the survey has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus approximately 6.2 percentage points, but the margin of error is slightly lower (approximately 5.2 percentage points) for responses selected by very high or very low percentages of the total sample.
