National Survey of 1,000 Likely Voters
Conducted November 19-20, 2013
By Rasmussen Reports
1* Has the media treated President Obama better or worse than it’s treated most prior presidents? Or has the media coverage been about the same?
2* Think for a moment about people who oppose President Obama's policies. Do people oppose the president’s policies primarily because they believe the policies are bad or is their opposition due to racism?
3* How would you rate the way the president has handled racial issues during his time in the White House – excellent, good, fair or poor?
4* Suppose the president nominates someone to serve as a judge or in a government position who is legally and professionally qualified for the job. Is it fair for a U.S. senator to oppose that nominee because of disagreements over ideology or judicial philosophy?
5* Regardless of any disagreements, should every presidential nominee be the subject of a simple yes-or-no vote in the Senate?
