Virginia Survey of 500 Likely Voters
Conducted March 20, 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 the 2012 Election for the U.S. Senate, suppose you had a choice between Republican George Allen and Democrat Tim Kaine. If the election 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 your own personal finances these days? Excellent, good, fair, or poor?
4* Are your personal finances getting better these days, or worse?
5* Is the United States currently in a recession?
6* 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?
