Per Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research: "In the landline sample, the incumbent names were inserted preceded by party identification. In unopposed districts, the generic 'the Democratic candidate' or 'the Republican candidate' was used for the opposition. For the cell phone sample, both candidates were given as generic."
