New Poll Shows Republican Foley in Striking Distance of Governor Malloy

 

In a recent survey in Connecticut, Vox Populi Polling found that Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley is in striking distance of Democrat incumbent Dannel Malloy. The survey also indicates that Education and Democracy Party candidate Jonathan Pelto is not doing Malloy any favors. With months to go until the November election, Malloy only leads Foley 35 to 34 percent with Pelto picking up 3 percent and 27 percent of voters undecided. Among independent voters, Foley leads Malloy 36 to 24 percent. Further, the majority of respondents said that they disapprove of Malloy’s performance as Governor. 

“Republicans have a potential pick up opportunity in Connecticut,” said Vox Populi Polling pollster Brent Seaborn. “With the majority of voters disapproving of Dannel Malloy’s performance as Governor and a third party candidate in the race, this seat is prime for Tom Foley’s taking.”

METHODOLOGY: The sample size for the survey is 550 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 +/- 4.2%. 443 interviews were completed using automated telephone technology and 107 were conducted using mobile-based survey technology. All interviews were conducted July 27– July 28, 2014 by Vox Populi Polling. The total percentages for responses may not equal 100% due to rounding.

Post-Primary Results Show Perdue in Command of U.S. Senate Race

Vox Populi Polling released a new survey today that found Republican U.S. Senate candidate David Perdue holds a commanding 49 to 40 percent lead over his Democrat opponent Michelle Nunn, with 10 percent undecided. These results come in the midst of the accidental leak of an internal Nunn strategy memo, which will likely be used against her in television and radio ads. 

“Our survey results show that David Perdue holds a commanding lead over Michelle Nunn after his recent primary victory,” said Vox Populi Pollster Brent Seaborn. “This is good news for Perdue who will likely see an uptick in his numbers after Republicans capitalize off of Nunn’s recent misfortune.”

METHODOLOGY: The sample size for the survey is 624 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 +/- 3.9%. 497 interviews were completed using automate telephone technology and 127 were conducted using mobile based survey technology. All interviews were conducted July 27–July  28, 2014 by Vox Populi Polling. The total percentages for responses may not equal 100% due to rounding.

RGIII Bests Green, Theismann, Monk and Riggins as Fans All-Time Favorite Player

As the Washington Redskins begin their second week of training camp, Vox Populi Polling found that Redskins fans rank NFL newcomer Robert Lee Griffin III as their all-time favorite player. Among Washington, DC area respondents who said the Redskins was their favorite team, 25 percent said RGIII was their favorite player. Fans ranked the current quarterback ahead of Redskins greats Darrell Green (18 percent), John Riggins (10 percent), Sonny Jurgenson (10 percent), Joe Theismann (9 percent) and Art Monk (7 percent), among others.   
“In only his third season, these numbers speak to RGIII's popularity and promise as a player,” said Vox Populi Polling spokeswomanLisa Boothe. “Just imagine how popular RGIII would be if he could help the Redskins capture a Super Bowl ring like Joe, Theismann, John Riggins, Darrell Green and Art Monk did.”
The sample size for the survey is 701 self-declared NFL fans. The margin of error for the full sample is +/- 3.7%.  352 interviewees indicated that the Redskins are their favorite DC area sports team. The margin of error for this subsample is +/- 5.2%. All interviews were completed using automated telephone technology and conducted July 20-21, 2014 by Vox Populi Polling. All respondents live in either Washington, DC, the Commonwealth of Virginia within the Washington DMA, or in one of the following counties in the state of Maryland: Montgomery, Prince George’s, Charles, St. Mary’s, and Calvert. The total percentages for responses may not equal 100% due to rounding.

Fans Agree Coaching Changes, Signing DeSean Jackson Were Team’s Best Offseason Moves 

Alexandria, VA – As training camp begins today, Vox Populi Polling found the majority of Washington, DC area residents who list the Redskins as their favorite team have limited hopes for this upcoming season. Specifically, 48 percent believe the team will win 6-9 games, 14 percent believe they will win 4-5 games and 6 percent believe they will win 3 or fewer. However, a little over a quarter of Redskins fans remain optimistic about the 2014 season, with 25 percent believing the Redskins will win 10-15 games and 3 percent believe they will go undefeated this season. Redskins fans also said that firing Mike Shanahan and signing DeSean Jackson were the team’s best offseason moves, along with hiring new Coach Jay Gruden.
 
“After the heartache of last season, the majority of Redskins fans are lukewarm about the upcoming season,” said Vox Populi Polling spokeswoman Lisa Boothe. “They are, however, happy with the team’s coaching changes and the signing of DeSean Jackson.”
 
The sample size for the survey is 701 self-declared NFL fans. The margin of error for the full sample is +/- 3.7%.  352 interviewees indicated that the Redskins are their favorite DC area sports team. The margin of error for this subsample is +/- 5.2%.

Local Fans Don’t Find Redskins Name Offensive, Won’t Purchase New Team Merchandise 

On the eve of the Redskins reporting to training camp, a new Vox Populi poll found that in the Washington, DC area 65 percent of NFL fans reject changing the team name. Among Redskins fans, that number rises to 77 percent. Of the NFL fans polled, 71 percent said the Redskins name is not offensive and 83 of the individuals who identified themselves as Redskins fans do not find it offensive. Further, 56 percent of those polled said that they would not purchase new merchandise if the Redskins were to change their name. 

“It appears that Washington Redskins fans are standing behind owner Dan Snyder’s commitment to keep their team name,” said Vox Populi polling spokeswoman Lisa Boothe. “Despite calls from some to change the Redskins’ namesake, the vast majority of fans do not find the team name offensive. In another sign of support, the majority of Washington, DC fans would not purchase new team merchandise if the Redskins changed their name.”

The Vox Populi survey of 701 self-declared NFL fans was conducted July 20-21. All respondents live in either Washington, DC, the Commonwealth of Virginia within the Washington DMA, or in one of the following counties in the state of Maryland: Montgomery, Prince George’s, Charles, St. Mary’s, and Calvert.
