*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 George Allen or Democrat Tim Kaine?

 

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* 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 Bob McDonnell has been doing as governor…do you strongly approve, somewhat approve, somewhat disapprove, or strongly disapprove of the job he’s been doing?
