Here is here how the poll was conducted: "A total of 400 Latino registered voters in Arizona were interviewed September 29-October 4, 2012 by Latino Decisions for America’s Voice. Interviews were conducted in English or Spanish, at the preference of the respondent, all conducted by bilingual interviewers at Latino Decisions calling center, Pacific Market Research. The survey averaged 12 minutes in length, and has an overall margin of error of 4.9% on results that approach a 50/50 distribution. All respondents confirm that they are Hispanic or Latino and currently registered to vote."
