Rasmussen: Voters More in Agreement With Romney on Issues

Wednesday, 30 May 2012 10:57 AM

By Todd Beamon

Mitt Romney edges President Barack Obama among Likely Voters who are in agreement with his views on the issues, according to a new Rasmussen Poll.

Forty-eight percent of those surveyed said they personally agree with Romney — just 2 percentage points more than those who said they agree with the president.

According to the survey, 38 percent said they agree with the presumptive Republican presidential candidate on most important issues — and 10 percent who agree with him on just about everything.

For Obama, 32 percent said they agree with him on most important issues, while 14 percent said they agree with him on nearly everything.

Fifty percent disagree with Obama — including 23 percent who say they disagree with the president on most important issues and 27 percent who disagree with him on just about everything.

Romney has the edge among voters not affiliated with either major party: 47 percent tend to agree with him on most issues, while only 37 percent agree with Obama.

As for the candidates themselves, most voters — 56 percent — say Obama and Romney disagree on most issues, including the economy, health care, and national security. Another 25 percent say they disagree on virtually everything.

The national telephone survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on May 26 to 27 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is plus or minus 3 percentage points with a 95 percent confidence level.
