Conducted September 25, 2012
By Rasmussen Reports
*Please note that we split the survey to rotate the order of the candidates, so while half will hear the Republican first, the other half hears the Democrat mentioned first.
1* If the Presidential Election were held today, would you vote for Republican Mitt Romney or Democrat Barack Obama?
2* Do you have a very favorable, somewhat favorable, somewhat unfavorable, or very unfavorable impression of Mitt Romney?
3* In terms of how you will vote in this year’s election how important is the issue of immigration?
4* Under a new federal government policy, young illegal immigrants are now able to obtain legal work permits in certain circumstances. If someone is in the country illegally but has been granted a work permit, should that person be eligible to receive a driver’s license and public benefits including subsidized child care and unemployment benefits from state governments?
5* How would you rate your own personal finances these days?
6* Are your personal finances getting better these days, or worse?
7* I’m going to read you a short list of issues in the
news. For each, please let me know which presidential candidate you trust more
to handle that issue.
8* How would you rate the job Barack Obama has been doing as president… do you strongly approve, somewhat approve, somewhat disapprove, or strongly disapprove of the job he’s been doing?
NOTE: Margin of Sampling Error, +/- 4.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence
