    Page 15 is where you'll find the stat bar for 100% south
    only moderates and conservatives, no liberals.  All 50+, no under 50's.  All white, no non-white.

      N/A does not mean NO members of this category, it simply means that the sub-sample size is too small for them to make any reasonable projections, as the Margin of Error gets too ridiculously large. If it was all-white and all over-50 then the margin of error reported for these groups would be the same as for the sample as a whole, and it isn't. The over-50s are around 75%, whites at least 82% and possibly over 90%, but not 100%.

      These are too large, yeah, but let's not exaggerate. And the regional thing is just wrong - the south is the largest region and should be around 30% of the total, which on my calculation it roughly is for this sample. The other regions are going to be too small sub-samples to get counted.

      Do your own calculations if you want to check.
