Conducted February 14, 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* In thinking about the 2012 Election for U.S. Senate suppose you had a choice between Republican Heather Wilson and Democrat Martin Heinrich. If the election were held today, would you vote for Republican Heather Wilson or Democrat Martin Heinrich?
2* What if the Democrats nominate Hector Balderas? If the election for U.S. Senate were held today, would you vote for Republican Heather Wilson or Democrat Hector Balderas?
3* Now 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.
4* How would you rate the job Susana Martinez has been doing as governor… do you strongly approve, somewhat approve, somewhat disapprove, or strongly disapprove of the job she’s been doing?
NOTE: Margin of Sampling Error, +/- 4 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence
