Conducted October 7, 2013

By Rasmussen Reports

 

1* How would you rate the job Barack Obama has been doing as president…do you strongly approve, somewhat approve, somewhat disapprove, or strongly disapprove of the job he’s been doing?

           

2* How would you rate the job Chris Christie has been doing as governor…do you strongly approve, somewhat approve, somewhat disapprove, or strongly disapprove of the job he’s been doing?

           

3* If the election for governor of New Jersey were held today, would you vote for Republican Chris Christie or Democrat Barbara Buono?

 

*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.

 

4* 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.
