Crosscut-Elway poll on public safety

This week Crosscut and Elway released a new poll on Seattle voters’ viewpoints on public safety.

The poll is of 400 Seattle voters, with a margin of error of 5%. Survey respondents are divided nearly equally across the seven City Council districts. However, according to the data collected it over-sampled White voters and under-sampled Black and Hispanic voters.

The survey report includes the full cross-tabs, which provides a further breakdown, but caveat emptor: since only 400 people in total were polled, the margin of error gets very high when looking at subgroups. To wit: only about 60 people were polled for each Council district of approximately 100,000 residents.
