Florida Survey of 788 Likely Republican Primary Voters

Conducted November 8, 2011
By Rasmussen Reports

 

Please note that we split the survey to rotate the order of the candidate names, so while half will hear the sequences displayed below, the other half hears a different order.

 

1* If the 2012 Republican Primary for President were held today would you vote for Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Herman Cain, Rick Perry, Ron Paul, Rick Santorum, Michele Bachmann or Jon Huntsman.

 

2* Are you certain you will vote for that candidate or is it possible that something come up that causes you to change your mind?

 

3* If the 2012 Republican Primary for President were held today and you had a choice between only Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich or Herman Cain for whom would you vote?

 

4* Suppose the 2012 Republican Primary for president were held today and you only had a choice between Mitt Romney and Herman Cain.  For whom would you vote?

 

5* Suppose the 2012 Republican Primary for president were held today and you only had a choice between Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich.  For whom would you vote?

 

6* Suppose the 2012 Republican Primary for president were held today and you only had a choice between Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich.  For whom would you vote?

 

7* Regardless of which candidate you want to win the Republican Presidential Nomination which candidate is most likely to win…. Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Herman Cain, Rick Perry, Ron Paul, Rick Santorum, Michele Bachmann or Jon Huntsman.

 

8* Suppose your favorite candidate does not win the nomination. When the general            election is held, would you be most likely to vote for the Republican candidate, President         Barack Obama, or a third party candidate?

 

9* If Mitt Romney wins the Republican presidential nomination, how likely would you be to consider supporting a third-party candidate?

 

10* How closely have you followed recent news stories concerning allegations of sexual harassment against a presidential candidate?

 

11* Recent news stories have focused on accusations of sexual harassment by Herman Cain. How likely is it that the allegations of sexual harassment were both serious and true?

 

12* How would you rate the way that Herman Cain and his campaign have responded to the allegations of sexual harassment—excellent, good, fair, or poor?


13* Looking back, were the bailouts of banks, auto companies, and insurance companies good for the United States or bad for the United States?

 

14* Many times, things come up that make it impossible for someone to vote in the primaries. Are you certain that you will vote in the Florida primary or is it possible that something might come up to prevent you from voting?

 

15* 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?

           

16* How would you rate the job Rick Scott has been doing as governor … do you strongly approve, somewhat approve, somewhat disapprove, or strongly disapprove of the job he’s been doing?
