More details from the Register Poll

Topics: Iowa

A story in yesterday's Des Moines Register includes some additional results profiling the contact that the "likely caucus goers" they surveyed have had with the campaigns and the news media. Quoting the story:

  • More than three-fourths have been contacted by a presidential campaign.
  • Forty-three percent have been to a campaign event where a candidate appeared.
  • Sixteen percent have donated money to a candidate.
  • Seven percent have been interviewed about the first-in-the-nation caucuses by the news media.

The story also restates some of the demographic results included in an earlier David Yepsen column, as well as one additional detail about those who say this will be their first caucus:

For 25 percent of likely Republican caucus participants and 23 percent of likely Democratic caucusgoers, January will bring their first experience at the party events, according to the poll.

However, party officials and campaign organizers shouldn't get too excited yet about the attendance plans of all these newcomers. Roughly one-fourth say they're definitely going to attend a caucus, while the other three-fourths say they probably will attend.

I have written about this survey in greater detail here and here.
