Summary
This poll, the last of three fielded October 2012, is a part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicits public opinion on a range of political and social issues. A number of questions were asked about respondents' voting intentions for and opinions of the 2012 presidential campaign and election, as well as the 2012 election for the United States House of Representatives. Respondents were also asked if they approved of the way Barack Obama was handling the presidency, foreign policy, and the economy, whether the country was headed in the right direction, and if they approved of the way Congress was handling its job. Further questions asked about the condition of the economy, the Bush-era tax cuts, illegal immigration, the best way to reduce the federal budget deficit, their opinion of Obama, Romney, Biden, and Ryan, and the most important issues in deciding how to vote in the presidential election. Additional topics included respondents' views on Obama's economic policies, the recent attack on the American consulate in Libya and the killing of the United States ambassador, abortion, the health care law, Medicare, withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, and Iran. Finally, respondents were asked about their main source of political news and information, whether they were a supporter of the Tea Party movement, and how much attention they had been able to pay to the 2012 presidential campaign. Demographic information includes sex, age, race, social class, marital status, household composition, education level, household income, employment status, religious preference, type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural), political party affiliation, political philosophy, voting history, voter registration status, and whether respondents thought of themselves as born-again Christians
