Thursday, May 31, 2012

Mitt Romney may have clinched the Republican nomination this week, but most voters aren't happy with the choices they now face in this year's presidential election.

Just 19% of Likely U.S. Voters believe Romney and President Obama are the two best people running for the presidency. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 64% don't believe they're the best possible nominees. Seventeen percent (17%) are undecided.

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on May 26-27, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC . See methodology.
