National Survey of 1,000 Likely
Conducted January 17-18, 2011
By Rasmussen Reports
1* Looking back, were the bailouts of banks, auto companies, and insurance companies good for the United States or bad for the United States?
2* Do you favor or oppose a boycott of all firms that received government bailout money?
3* Suppose that consumers boycotted firms that received a government bailout. Looking ahead, would that make companies less likely to accept a government bailout?
4* What would do more to prevent future bailouts—companies fearing a boycott or members of Congress fearing voter disapproval?
5* Bailouts were provided to auto companies, banks, insurance companies, and others. How likely are you to boycott all firms that were bailed out by the government?
