Virginia Survey of 500 Likely Voters

Conducted July 16-17, 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 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.


George Allen

Tim Kaine


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* Will the health care plan passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama be good for the country or bad for the country?


6* A proposal has been made to repeal the health care bill and stop it from going into effect. Do you strongly favor, somewhat favor, somewhat oppose or strongly oppose a proposal to repeal the health care bill?

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?
