Fox News Democracy 2020

Fox News Voter Analysis

The Fox News Voter Analysis, conducted in partnership with the Associated Press, provides a comprehensive look at voting behavior, opinions and preferences as America votes. It is based on surveys of the American electorate conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago. For the 2020 Democratic presidential primaries and caucuses, the FNVA results are based on interviews with a random sample of registered voters drawn from state voter files. In select states, these probability sample results are supplemented by interviews with self-identified registered voters recruited from nonprobability online panels. The FNVA methodology captures last-minute voter trends, which are of particular importance in the early caucuses and primaries, as well as the sentiments and behavior of early and absentee voters, who are significant on Super Tuesday and other later primaries.

The percentages to the right of each listed candidate show how the particular subgroup of voters divided its vote.
