National Survey of 1,000 Likely Voters
Conducted January 17-18, 2013
By Rasmussen Reports

1* Is the president of the United States the most powerful person in the world?

2* Does the president of the United States have too much power, not enough power, or about the right amount of power?

3* Will a woman be elected president of the United States in the next 25 years?

4* The Constitution currently limits presidents to serving no more than two elected four-year terms. Should the Constitution be changed so that a president can run for a third four-year term?

5* Would it be better for the country if a president could serve only one elected six-year term and not be allowed to seek reelection?
