POLLS TODAY 10 AUGUST 2021
POLLS TODAY – Seven out of ten Italians are in favor of the Green Pass with the voters of Fratelli d’Italia who are the most skeptical about the mandatory nature of green certification: this is what emerges from the latest polls drawn up by Demopolis for RaiRadio1.
According to the survey, in fact, 72% of respondents say they are in favor of using the Green Pass, which came into force on August 6, to access large indoor events and venues. 23% say they are against it, while 5% have an opinion on the matter.
The percentages change based on the political positioning of the respondents. Most of the Pd voters, precisely 93%, say they are in favor of the Green Pass. The Forza Italia voters follow with 85 percent and those of the M5S with 82% of those in favor. Among the Lega voters, 60% are in favor of green certification, while those of Fratelli d’Italia are the most skeptical with only 48% of the interviewees declaring themselves satisfied with the anti-Covid measure.
How surveys are done
The electoral and political polls are carried out by opinion polling societies respecting very specific scientific criteria. The authors of the surveys must identify a sample to be interviewed that is sufficiently large and representative of the population to be analyzed. In the case of polls on voting intentions for parties or the confidence index of political leaders, therefore, the interviewees must adequately represent the Italian population of age, those who have the right to vote and who go to the polls.
This work is done to minimize the margin of error and make the detection as reliable as possible. Usually a political-electoral poll is considered reliable if the indicated margin of error is 3 percent with a 95 percent confidence interval. It is precisely that of identifying a representative sample of the population that is the greatest difficulty for pollsters. Interviews for political electoral polls are usually conducted with a Cati methodology, by telephone, or Cawi, via the Internet, or mixed. To carry out the interviews, opinion polling companies rely on specialized companies.
