Is you interval spread indicating that the confidence interval used by the study is larger or smaller than 95%?

Is you interval spread indicating that the confidence interval used by the study is larger or smaller than 95%?



 Sample size = 2,020 Margin of error = ± 2.6

The overall percentages show that 69% of the people surveyed approve and 24% disapprove and 4% are unsure or have no answer. 

The confidence interval for each result is found by adding/subtracting the MoE from the result.  

In favor: (69-2.6%, 69+2.6%) = (67.206, 70.794)

N = 2020 

Number of successes = 69% of 2020 = .69*2020 = 1393.8 rounded to 1394 people 

Confidence Level = 95% 

Confidence Interval is (0.6699, 0.713)
