Washington Survey of 500 Likely Voters
Conducted September 26, 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 U.S. Senate were held today would you vote for Republican Michael Baumgartner or Democrat Maria Cantwell?
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* This November an initiative will be on the ballot that would remove state-law prohibitions against producing, processing, and selling marijuana, subject to licensing and regulation by the liquor control board. If the election were held today, would you vote for or against this initiative?
NOTE: Margin of Sampling Error, +/- 4.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence
