This poll, fielded November of 2011 and the third of three, is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicits public opinion on a range of political and social issues. This survey focused on Iowa residents prior to the 2012 Iowa Presidential Caucus. Respondents were asked how well Barack Obama was handling the presidency, about their enthusiasm for the way the federal government was working, whether they supported the Tea Party movement, and whether they supported the Occupy Wall Street movement. Further questions asked how much attention respondents were paying to the 2012 campaign, whether they planned to vote in a 2012 caucus, who they preferred for the Republican nomination and how sure they were about this choice, what issue was most important in deciding which candidate they would support in the Iowa Republican Presidential Caucuses, and whether the Republican Party was headed in the right direction. Opinions were sought about the various Republican candidates, as well as respondents' willingness to vote for a candidate with different views than their own, and how important it was that the candidate spent a lot of time in Iowa. Information was also sought about whether respondents watched or listened to the Republican debates, attended campaign events, organized or hosted campaign events, whether they were contacted by the political campaigns, which news network they watch, whether they listen to political radio call-ins, and whether they received campaign information via Facebook or Twitter. Respondents were asked for their opinions about abortion, legalization of same-sex marriage, illegal immigration resolutions, repeal of the healthcare law, the distribution of wealth in the country, raising taxes on households earning more than one million dollars a year, and United States involvement in Afghanistan. Additional topics included respondents' opinions of the future of the next generation, how concerned the respondent was that they or someone in their household would lose their job in the next twelve months, and their family's financial outlook. Demographic information includes sex, age, race, marital status, education level, household income, employment status, religious preference, whether respondents thought of themselves as born-again Christians, type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural), political party affiliation, political philosophy, voter registration status, voting behavior, household composition, whether their children are home-schooled, and the number of phones in their households.
