Re: Romney 46% - Obama 31%

If you make all the assumptions that statisticians tend to make (whether justified or not), one standard deviation in your expected results is apporximately 1 divided by the square root of the sample size.

That's why the error for the overall result is 3% while that for the result on independents is 8%.
