Florida Survey of 500 Likely Voters

Conducted March 13, 2012

By Rasmussen Reports


*Please note that we split the survey to rotate the order of the candidates, so while half will hear the Republican first, the other half hears the Democrat mentioned first.


1* In thinking about the 2012 presidential election, suppose you had a choice between Republican Mitt Romney and Democrat Barack Obama.  If the election were held today, would you vote for Republican Mitt Romney or Democrat Barack Obama? 


2* Suppose the Republicans nominate Rick Santorum.  If the 2012 election for president were held today, would you vote for Republican Rick Santorum or Democrat Barack Obama? 


3* Now I’m going to read you a short list of people in the news. For each, please let me know if you have a very favorable, somewhat favorable, somewhat unfavorable or very unfavorable impression.


Mitt Romney
Rick Santorum


4* Generally speaking, How would you rate your own personal finances these days?  Excellent, good, fair, or poor?


5* Are your personal finances getting better these days, or worse?

6* Is the United States currently in a recession?


7* As a nation, is America overtaxed?


8* Should any increase in federal taxes be approved by a vote of the American people?


9* Should any changes in Medicare or Social Security be approved by a vote of the American people?

10* Should health insurance companies be required by law to cover all government-approved contraceptives for women, without co-payments or other charges to the patient?

11* How would you rate the job Barack Obama has been doing as president…do you strongly approve, somewhat approve, somewhat disapprove, or strongly disapprove of the job he’s been doing?
