Virginia Survey of 500 Likely Voters
Conducted September 13, 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.
3* Generally speaking, how would you rate your own personal finances these days?
4* Are your personal finances getting better these days, or worse?
5* 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?
NOTE: Margin of Sampling Error, +/- 4.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence
