Poll Watch: Rasmussen (R) 2012 Presidential Survey

Rasmussen (R) 2012 Presidential Poll

Are Barack Obama and Mitt Romney the best two people to be running for President?
  • Yes 19%
  • No 64%
Survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted May 26-27, 2012. The margin of error is +/- 3 percentage points.

Inside the numbers:
Democrats are more enthusiastic about the choices than Republicans are. Just 48% of Democrats don't believe Obama and Romney are the best candidates running for the White House this year. But that compares to 71% of Republicans - and 73% of voters not affiliated with either party - who feel that way.

Three-out-of-four Tea Party voters (75%) don’t view the president and the former Massachusetts governor as the best possible candidates, and 63% of non-Tea Party members agree. Seventy-four percent (74%) of conservatives feel these candidates are not the best ones running, but only 59% of moderates and 54% of liberals agree.

Black voters are almost evenly divided. Seventy percent (70%) of whites and 58% of voters of other races don't think the two choices are the best.
