1* If the 2012 Election for U.S. Senate were held today would you vote for Republican Josh Mandel or Democrat Sherrod Brown?

 

2* I’m going to read you a short list of people in the news.  For each, please let me know you have a very favorable, somewhat favorable, somewhat unfavorable, or very unfavorable impression.
