Poll Watch: Rasmussen (R) 2012 Vice Presidential Favorability Survey

Rasmussen (R) 2012 VP Favorability Poll

Favorable / Unfavorable {Net}
  • Condoleezza Rice 66% / 24% {+42%}
  • Mike Huckabee 44% / 40% {+4%}
  • Allen West 27% / 27% {0%}
  • Susana Martinez 19% / 23% {-4%}
  • Bob McDonnell 20% / 26% {-6%}
National survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted April 24-25, 2012. The margin of error is +/- 3 percentage points.
Inside the numbers: 
Rice is far and away the most popular in the latest batch of five possible vice presidential candidates asked about. She’s also viewed a lot more favorably than an earlier set of candidates including Florida Senator Marco Rubio, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and the man who recently ended his own GOP presidential campaign, former Senator Rick Santorum.

Among Republican voters, 84% hold a favorable opinion of the nation’s chief diplomat under President George W. Bush, giving her double-digit leads over Rubio, Christie and Santorum who all run in the 60s. Running second among the current batch of possible vice presidential candidates is former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, an unsuccessful candidate for the party’s presidential nomination in 2008. He’s viewed favorably by 72% of GOP voters.

Among Republicans, 44% like West, 18% don’t, 38% aren’t sure.

Among Republicans, 36% view McDonnell favorably and 26% say the same of Martinez, but 45% and 54% of GOP voters respectively have no opinion of them.
