Summary
This poll, the second of two fielded August 2012, is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicits public opinion on a range of political and social issues. Respondents were asked how well Barack Obama was handling the presidency on issues such as foreign policy, the economy, the war in Afghanistan, and the performance of Congress. Data were collected on voter enthusiasm for the 2012 election, intentions to vote, as well as current opinions on specific election issues. Several questions were asked about the state of the nation today and respondent feelings about the future. Participants were also asked for their opinions on the favorability of the vice-presidential candidates Joe Biden and Paul Ryan, their ability to be an effective president, and whether Paul Ryan would influence their voting preference for Mitt Romney. Opinions were collected on the direction that each presidential candidate would take the nation, and which candidate would do a better job handling issues such as economy and unemployment, Medicare, and helping middle class Americans. Furthermore, participants were queried about their own opinions on election issues such as abortion, Congressman Todd Akin's statements on abortion, the Tea Party movement, and health care. Additional topics included family financial improvements over the past four years, expectations for television coverage of the two parties, the Supreme Court decision that allowed unlimited funds spent on political advertising, and whether celebrities' public support of a candidate would influence voting choice. Demographic information includes sex, age, race, marital status, education level, household income, employment status, religious preference, type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural), political party affiliation, political philosophy, voting behavior, whether respondents were registered to vote, and whether respondents thought of themselves as born-again Christians
