National Survey of 1,000 Likely Voters

Conducted August 17-18, 2013

By Rasmussen Reports

 

1* Can you name your U.S. congressman?

 

2* Can you name your U.S. senators?

 

3* While members of Congress are home for the August recess, many are holding town halls for their voters. Have you attended a town hall meeting held by one of your members of Congress this month, or are you likely to attend one before the end of the month?

 

4* When members of Congress hold town hall meetings, is it more important for them to explain legislation to people or is it more important for them to hear the views of their constituents?

 

5*  Generally speaking, are those protesting at town hall meetings citizens reflecting the concerns of their neighbors or are the protests phony efforts drummed up by special interest groups and lobbyists?
