National Survey of 1,000 GOP Primary Likely Voters

Conducted on November 1, 2010

By Rasmussen Reports

 

1* Generally speaking, do you feel things in this country are going in the right direction or have they gotten off on the wrong track?

  

2* 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?

 

3* If the 2012 Republican Primary for President were held today would you vote for Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, Newt Gingrich or Mitch Daniels?

 

4* Suppose some of the bigger names decided not to run for President in 2012 and you had a choice between Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, John Thune, Mitch Daniels, Mike Pence, Chris Christie, Jim DeMint and Haley Barbour…for whom would you vote?

 

5* Suppose Mitt Romney won the Republican nomination for president of the United States. How likely is it that you would consider supporting a third party candidate for President rather than the Republican nominee?

 

6* Suppose Sarah Palin won the Republican nomination for president of the United States. How likely is it that you would consider supporting a third party candidate for President rather than the Republican nominee?
