POLL: Rural Strategies Survey


A new Center for Rural Strategies survey (release, analysis, results) of 804 likely voters in rural parts of the United States (conducted 5/31 through 6/5 Greenberg Quinlan Rosner (D) and Greener and Hook (R) ) finds:

  • 23% of rural voters think the country is going in the right direction; 66% say it's on the wrong track.

  • 44% approve of the job George Bush is doing as president; 52% disapprove.

  • 46% would vote for the Democratic candidate on a generic ballot for president; 43% would vote for the Republican. On a generic ballot for U.S. Congress, 46% would vote for the Democrat, 44% would vote for the Republican.

Ralston Long:

A generic Democratic candidate and a generic Republican candidate do not exist. The closest we can get is an Independant candidate. Unfortunately an Independant candidate has not appeared. Therefore, we must pick the most independant candidate from the two parties. Only JOHN MCCAIN has demonstrated the independance to stand by his ideals and convictions. As an Iraq veteran with the Alabama Army National Guard and a farmer from rural Alabama, I will be voting for JOHN MCCAIN.
