Global Research utilized Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI) to interview 520 Bermuda residents aged 18 years and older (including 450 registered Bermuda voters). These telephone interviews were conducted between August 20th – August 27th 2020, and the results were weighted to be representative of Bermuda’s population based on age, race and gender. The survey’s margin of error for the study is +/- 4.3%. Reported percentages and summary values may not sum to 100% due to rounding. Where possible, the results obtained are compared to a similar demographically weighted survey conducted in 2016 with 400 registered voters in Bermuda.
