Summary
This poll, the first of two fielded April 2012, is a 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, terrorism, the economy, the war in Afghanistan, the housing market, and the issue of gasoline prices. Opinions were collected on whether respondents thought the country was headed in the right direction, the most important problem facing the nation, whether Congress was performing their job well, and the national economy. Respondents were also queried on their opinions of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, as well as whether either of the two presidential candidates would be able to bring real change to Washington, whether they would be able to make the right decisions on various issues, and whether they would be an effective military leader. Additional topics included economic concerns, the suspension of Rick Santorum's presidential campaign, women's health issues, the future of the next generation of Americans, gasoline prices, the home mortgage crisis, federal income tax policies and the capital gains tax policy, the John Edwards trial, and the college education of the respondent's child. Finally, respondents were asked whether they voted in the 2008 presidential election and who they voted for, whether they supported the Tea Party movement, whether they usually vote Democratic or Republican, whether they planned to vote in a 2012 primary or caucus, how much attention they have paid to the 2012 presidential campaign, and whether they were registered to vote. Demographic information includes sex, age, race, social class, marital status, household makeup, education level, household income, employment status, religious preference, type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural), political party affiliation, political philosophy, and whether respondents thought of themselves as born-again Christians
