National Survey of 1,000 Likely Voters

Conducted February 22-23, 2011
By Rasmussen Reports



1* How closely have you followed news reports about the Wisconsin governor’s effort to limit collective bargaining rights for most state employees?


 2* In the dispute between the governor and the union workers, do you agree more with the governor or the union for teachers and other state employees?


 3* Do you strongly favor, somewhat favor, somewhat oppose or strongly oppose unions for public employees?


4* In an effort to prevent a vote on legislation that would limit the rights of public employee unions, some Wisconsin senators left the state. Until they return, there will not be enough state senators in attendance to hold a vote. Do you approve or disapprove of this tactic?


5* Should members of public employee unions contribute the same percentage to their health care and pension plans as those in the private sector pay?
