In a complete report released today, poll results indicate Oklahoma City likely voters would strongly favor the Oklahoma City firefighters in any contract dispute that might occur.


About the Poll, Oklahoma’s public opinion pollster, conducted the poll which was commissioned by the Oklahoma City firefighters local 157.

The scientific study was conducted from December 7-28, 2016 with 419 likely Oklahoma City voters selected at random from a dual-frame of both landline telephone and cell phones. The sample was weighted by age, political party, and gender in order to reflect the Oklahoma City likely voter population for a special election. The weighting was conducted using a ‘layered technique.’

The sample reflects the traditional demographical profile of Oklahoma City special election voters. The study has a Margin of Error (MoE) of ± 4.79 percent.

This poll not only conforms to the Standards of Disclosure of the National Council on Public Polls but exceeds the standard disclosure with a Call Disposition and Rate Calculation Report. A complete description of the methodology can be found here.
