National Survey of 1,000 Likely Voters

Conducted April 23-24, 2014

By Rasmussen Reports


1* What is more important to you when you vote - a candidate's campaign promises, his or her track record in office or the political party he or she represents?


2* Is it negative campaigning when a group or candidate accurately describes the position of another candidate which they oppose?


3* Should the government be allowed to review political ads and candidates' campaign comments for their accuracy and punish those that it decides are making false statements about other candidates?


4* Do most politicians keep their campaign promises?


5* 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?
