Georgia Poll: Perdue Rising

on July 30, 2014

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.

Grayson leads informed ballot, has higher name ID and favorables

Alexandria, VA – A new survey conducted by Vox Populi Polling among Democrat primary voters in Florida found that Rep. Alan Grayson is poised to pull off an upset against Rep. Patrick Murphy in the race for Marco Rubio’s U.S. Senate seat. While Murphy leads Grayson on the initial ballot test by 34-24 percent, his lead dissipates once voters learn more about the candidates. Once informed, voters prefer Grayson 56-21 percent, with 24 percent of voters undecided.

“Marco Rubio stepping down from the U.S. Senate to run for president ensures that the race to replace him in 2016 will be one of the most contested in the country.\" said Vox Populi Polling Pollster Brent Seaborn. “Democrats will have a tough primary on their hands if Reps. Grayson and Murphy run against each other. As voters learn more about the two candidates, Grayson is well positioned to pull off what would be a major upset to Democrats.\"

Other key findings include:

  • 37 percent of Democrat voters have a somewhat or very favorable opinion of Grayson compared to 36 percent who view Murphy favorably.
  • Grayson leads in name recognition, with 42 percent of voters saying they are not aware of Grayson compared to 47 percent who are unaware of Murphy.
  • When voters learned that Grayson opposed food stamp cuts and Murphy supported them, 57 percent of voters were more inclined to support Grayson.
  • When hearing that Grayson supported a more progressive budget and Murphy opposed it, 66 percent of voters were more likely to vote for Grayson.
  • 75 percent said it was either very important or somewhat important to have a progressive nominee who will stand up to big corporations and Wall Street.
  • 56 percent of voters were either somewhat or much less likely to support Murphy when they found out he is a former Republican who donated to Romney.

Methodology: The sample size for the survey is 717 likely Democratic primary voters in the US taken from a listed sample of registered voters in Florida that are modeled Democrats or Independents. The margin of error is +/- 3.7%. 501 interviews were completed using automated telephone technology and 216 were conducted using mobile based survey technology. All interviews were conducted June 15-17, 2015, by Vox Populi Polling. The total percentages for responses may not equal 100% due to rounding.

Majority of Americans believe email controversy will hurt Clinton’s 2016 ambitions

 

Alexandria, VA – On the heels of the controversy surrounding Hillary Clinton’s exclusive use of private emails on a private server for official government correspondence, Vox Populi Polling conducted a nationwide survey to gauge Americans’ reactions. The numbers don’t look good for Clinton.

Not only do the majority of Americans, 52 percent, not trust Hillary Clinton, but 57 percent of Independents either somewhat distrust or greatly distrust her. A plurality of voters believe that Clinton intentionally withheld information and 68 percent believe that she risked American security. Americans also believe that Hillary Clinton should turn over all emails immediately. Among those polled, 55 percent of respondents believe that the email controversy is either somewhat or very likely to have an impact on the 2016 presidential race.

When asked about the Clinton Foundation receiving donations from foreign governments that were lobbying the State Department, a majority of voters believe that they were trying to buy influence with the U.S. government.

“Hillary Clinton’s terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week has gotten even worse,” said Vox Populi Polling spokeswoman Lisa Boothe. “The numbers illustrate that the controversy surrounding her emails is having a negative impact on public opinion of her. Not only do the majority of Americans not trust Hillary Clinton but they believe her use of private emails and a private server have risked American security. The response is so negative for Clinton that the majority of Americans believe it will impact the 2016 presidential election.”

METHODOLOGY: The sample size for the survey is 909 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 +/- 3.3%. 700 interviews were completed using automated telephone technology and 209 were conducted using mobile based survey technology. All interviews were conducted March 10-11, 2015 by Vox Populi Polling. The total percentages for responses may not equal 100% due to rounding.

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.
