    Six people have declared their intentions to run for a county commission seat in the next general election. A political poll is conducted three-quarters of the way into the campaign to determine if there are any clear preferences on the part of the voters. One thousand twenty randomly-selected voters were asked to indicate their choice. The responses are presented in the table. (Use the Chi-square method.)

    Candidate Number of responses
    A 180
    B 240
    C 200
    D 130
    E 125
    F 145
