National Survey of 1,000 Likely
Conducted October 2-3, 2011
By Rasmussen Reports
1* In a presidential election season, does the campaign last too long?
2* In the race for the Republican nomination, are there too many candidate debates, too few debates, or about the right number?
3* How many of the debates so far have you watched completely from beginning to end?
4* Do the debate moderators ask mostly about important issues, minor issues, or meaningless trivia?
5* Should all candidates be given 5 minutes in a debate to state what they see as the most important issue and what they would do about it?
