This survey was conducted June 27-28, 2020, among a representative sample of all Russian residents. The sample was comprised of 1622 people aged 18 or older. The survey was conducted by means of computer-assisted telephone interviews (CATI) through random digit dialing (RDD) of mobile and landline numbers. The statistical error for this study does not exceed 2.4%. The answer distribution is presented as percentages of the total number of participants.
Note that the field work was mostly conducted on June 27, that is, the survey results show Russians’ declared readiness to take part in voting on this very date; therefore, they should not be regarded as exit poll results.
