Respondents say Clint Eastwood not being nominated for best director is the biggest snub, disagree with Michael Moore

 

Alexandria, VA – In anticipationof this year’s Oscars, Vox Populi Polling conducted a national survey asking a series of questions about the event. The results indicate that young viewers are excited for this year’s Academy Awards, with 43 percent of 18-45 year olds planning to tune in this Sunday. This key demographic has neglected the Oscars in recent years, but if these viewers follow through on their intentions to watch it could be a great ratings night for ABC. African American respondents also seem intent to watch the Oscars, with 34 percent saying they will tune in despite the absence of a single black nominee in an acting category.

Vox Populi also asked questions about the Oscar nominated film, American Sniper. Despite the controversy surrounding the film, American Sniper is still America’s pick for Best Picture, with 38 percent of those surveyed believing it should beat out the other nominees. Respondents also thought that the biggest snub at this year’s Oscars was Clint Eastwood not being nominated for Best Director. Further, when asked if American Sniper was a pro-war movie, an anti-war movie or something in between, 70 percent of those who have seen the film said it was something in between.

The majority of respondents disagreed with Michael Moore’s controversial statement that snipers were cowards. A total of 77 percent either somewhat or strongly disagreed with his statement. Among those surveyed, 90 percent of Republicans disagreed with his comments, along with 63 percent of Democrats. However, 37 percent of Democrats did agree with Moore’s statement. 

“Although American Sniper has been at the center of controversy, a plurality of respondents disagree with the movie’s critics,” said Vox Populi Polling spokeswoman Lisa Boothe. “Not only do a plurality of the individuals who were polled believe the movie should receive the Academy Award for Best Picture, but they also believe that the movie’s director Clint Eastwood was snubbed. They also soundly reject liberal movie maker Michael Moore’s statement that snipers are cowards.”

Methodology: The sample size for the survey is 839 active voters in the US taken from a listed sample of registered voters who voted in the 2010 or 2012 general election or registered since the 2012 general election. The margin of error is +/- 3.4%. 577 interviews were completed using automated telephone technology and 262 were conducted using mobile-based survey technology. All interviews were conducted February 9-10, 2015 by Vox Populi Polling. The total percentages for responses may not equal 100% due to rounding.

More Republicans Than Democrats Identify Christmas as Primarily a Religious Holiday


Alexandria, VA – 
A new Vox Populi Polling holiday survey found that 56 percent of Americans view Christmas as primarily a religious holiday, while 21 percent view it as a cultural holiday. That number breaks down differently along party lines; 69% of Republicans identify Christmas as primarily a religious holiday, compared to 52% of Democrats and 47% of Independents. Among those surveyed, 53 percent said that family gatherings are their favorite part of Christmas, with a religious ceremony or reflection listed second at 19 percent.

“In the age of political correctness, the majority of Americans will be celebrating this Christmas as a religious holiday,” said Vox Populi Polling Spokeswoman Lisa Boothe. “Interestingly, more Republicans identify Christmas as a religious holiday than Democrats or Independents.”

METHODOLOGY: The sample size for the survey is 711 active voters in the US taken from a listed sample of registered voters who voted in the 2010 or 2012 general election or registered since the 2012 general election.

Alexandria, VA – A new Louisiana survey released by Vox Populi Polling today found that Republican U.S. Senate candidate Bill Cassidy leads Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu 53 to 42 percent, with 5 percent unsure. In addition, Cassidy is up big with Independents, winning with them 58 to 31 percent over Landrieu. Cassidy has seen a big  bump after the Nov. 4 open primary. In our recent Oct. 13-14 survey, Cassidy led Landrieu 48 to 44 percent in a head-to-head, with 8 percent unsure.

On the heels of last night’s vote on the Keystone XL Pipeline, it is interesting to note that voters are not moved by Mary Landrieu’s efforts to bring the legislation before the United States Senate for a floor vote. When asked if it made voters more likely to vote for the incumbent Democrat, 39 percent said it made them more likely to vote for Bill Cassidy and 32 percent said it made them more likely to vote for Mary Landrieu.

Louisianans listed President Obama’s job performance as the greatest issue of concern as they head to the polls for the Dec. 6 runoff. ObamaCare, along with the economy and jobs, were cited as the second and third most important issues to Louisiana voters. According to the survey, 61 percent of voters disapprove of President Obama with only 38 percent of voters approving of his performance.


“Bill Cassidy heads into the Dec. 6 runoff with a huge lead over Senator Mary Landrieu,” said Vox Populi Polling spokeswoman Lisa Boothe. “Louisiana voters’ disdain for President Obama, coupled with the unpopularity of ObamaCare in the state, could be influential in their decision making as they cast their ballots next month.”


METHODOLOGY: The sample size for the survey is 761 active voters taken from a listed sample of registered voters who voted in the 2010 or 2012 general election or registered since the 2012 general election. The margin of error is +/- 3.55%. 626 interviews were completed using automated telephone technology and 135 were conducted using mobile-based survey technology. All interviews were conducted November 16-17, 2014 by Vox Populi Polling. The total percentages for responses may not equal 100% due to rounding.
