Only 32% Think Bill Clinton, Obama See Eye-to-Eye on Economy
Monday, August 06, 2012
Bill Clinton will have a prominent role at the upcoming Democratic National Convention to give a boost to President Obama’s reelection campaign, but voters aren’t sure if the two men agree on how to fix the economy.
Just 32% of Likely U.S. Voters believe Clinton and Obama hold similar views on how to fix the economy, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Slightly more (39%) think they have differing views on what’s needed, and another 29% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The survey of 1,000 Likely U.S. Voters was conducted on August 2-3, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
