National Survey of 1,000 Adults
Conducted January 24-25, 2011
By Rasmussen Reports

 

1* Do you know anyone who is out of work and looking for a job?

 

2* Do you know anyone who, out of frustration with the difficult job market, has given up looking for a job? 

 

3* Is the job market better than it was a year ago, worse than it was a year ago or about the same? 

 

4* A year from today will unemployment be higher than it is today, lower than it is today or about the same as it is today?

 

5* People can’t find work after an extended period of time, should the federal government hire them, pay for their retraining, extend their unemployment benefits indefinitely or do nothing at all? 

 

6* Which will do more to help create jobs in America—decisions made by government officials to help the economy grow or decisions made by U.S. business leaders to help their own businesses grow?
