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 election for U.S. Senate were held today, would you vote for Republican Heather Wilson or Democrat Martin Heinrich?
2* 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.
3* Generally speaking, how would you rate the U.S. economy these days? Excellent, good, fair, or poor?
4* Are economic conditions in the country getting better or worse?
5* Do you have a very favorable, somewhat favorable, somewhat unfavorable or very unfavorable impression of Medicare?
6* When it comes to the future of Medicare, which scares you more…President Obama’s health care law or Paul Ryan’s proposal?
7* 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?
