National Survey of
1,000 Likely Voters
Conducted November 2-3, 2014
By Rasmussen Reports
1* Do most politicians keep their campaign promises?
2* When politicians break campaign promises, is it usually because they deliberately made a false promise to get elected or because of unforeseen events after they took office?
3* What is more important to you when you vote – a candidate’s policies, his or her track record in office, the political party he or she represents or the prominent people who support the candidate?
4* Suppose you had a choice between two candidates for Congress, one who would work to cut federal government spending or one who would work to make sure your district gets its fair share of all federal spending. For whom would you vote?
5* In covering most candidates, is the media more interested in where they stand on the issues or in creating controversies about them?
