Poll Watch: Rasmussen (R) 2012 Presidential Survey

Rasmussen (R) 2012 Presidential Poll

I’m going to read you a short list of issues in the news. For each, please let me know which presidential candidate you trust more to handle that issue—Barack Obama or Mitt Romney.

War in Afghanistan
  • Barack Obama 50%
  • Mitt Romney 40%
  • Barack Obama 49%
  • Mitt Romney 41%
Social Security
  • Barack Obama 49%
  • Mitt Romney 44%
Government Ethics and Corruption
  • Barack Obama 46%
  • Mitt Romney 42%
  • Barack Obama 47%
  • Mitt Romney 46%
    National survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted September 7-8, 2012. The margin of error is +/- 3 percentage points.

    Inside the numbers:
    On all five of the issues included in the latest survey, the president holds double-digit leads over Romney in terms of voter trust among voters not affiliated with either of the major political parties.

    Most voters over 65 give Romney the edge in trust on all five issues, while most younger voters trust the president more.
