2* Do you have a very favorable, somewhat favorable, somewhat unfavorable or very unfavorable impression of Mitt Romney?

4* Are your personal finances getting better these days, or worse?

5* Is the United States currently in a recession?


6* How important is it for the government to create an environment that encourages economic growth?


7* How important is it for the government to create an environment that ensures economic fairness?


8* Which is more important—encouraging economic growth or ensuring economic fairness?

9* Are people who start small businesses primarily responsible for the success or failure of their businesses?

10* Compared to other workers, do small business owners work harder, not as hard or about the same as a typical worker?
