Conducted March 22-23, 2014
By Rasmussen Reports
1* How closely have you followed recent news reports about the United States and Russia?
2* Crimean voters on Sunday overwhelmingly voted to secede from Ukraine and join Russia. The United States and the European Union denounced the vote as illegal. Do you favor or oppose Russia's annexation of Crimea?
3* The United States has imposed economic sanctions on a number of top Russian officials and business leaders in retaliation for Russia's annexation of Crimea. How likely is it that those sanctions will make Russia give up Crimea – very likely, somewhat likely, not very likely or not at all likely?
4* If the sanctions fail to force Russia to give up Crimea, should the United States take more aggressive action against Russia?
5* Do you have a very favorable, somewhat favorable, somewhat unfavorable or very unfavorable opinion of Vladimir Putin?
