Arizona Survey of
500 Likely Voters
Conducted October 21, 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 2012 election for the U.S. Senate were held today, would you vote for Republican Jeff Flake or Democrat Richard Carmona?
2* I’m going to read you a short list of people in the news. For each, please let me know if you have a very favorable, somewhat favorable, somewhat unfavorable, or very unfavorable impression.
3* In terms of how you will vote in the next national election, are you primarily interested in National Security issues such as the War in Afghanistan and the War on Terror, Economic issues such as jobs and economic growth, Domestic Issues like Social Security and Health Care, Cultural issues such as same-se marriage and abortion, or Fiscal issues such as taxes and government spending?
4* This November Proposition 204 will be on the ballot. Proposition 204 establishes a permanent one cent per dollar increase in the state sales tax. The funds generated by this proposal are dedicate to K-12 education, community colleges and Arizona’s state university program. If the election were held today would you vote for or against Proposition 204?
5* Another Proposition on the ballot in November is Proposition 120. Proposition 120 declares Arizona's sovereign and exclusive authority and jurisdiction over the air, water, public lands, minerals, wildlife and other natural resources within the state's boundaries, which is currently under the jurisdiction of the federal government. If the election were held today would you vote for or against proposition 120?
6* Another Proposition on the ballot in November is Proposition 121. Proposition 121 would establish a single state primary for all legislative, state and congressional races as opposed to the current political party primary system. With a single state primary system the top two vote-getters would advance to the general election regardless of their party. If the election were held today would you vote for or against Proposition 121?
7* How concerned are you that voter fraud will play a role in Arizona’s elections?
8* How would you rate the job Jan Brewer has been doing as governor…do you strongly approve, somewhat approve, somewhat disapprove, or strongly disapprove of the job she’s been doing?
