Results of SurveyUSA News Poll #5998
 
Analysis: SurveyUSA interviewed by telephone 600 adults age 18+ in each of the 50 United States. Questionnaires in all 50 states were identical. Only the names of the office holders changed from state to state. The exact question wording as read to the respondent follows. Margin of sampling error is incorporated into the results below, and is calculated question by question (and so may vary from one Senator to the next, based on the Senator's approval rating). Field dates and full statement of methodology at left. The sponsoring media client for each statewide poll appears at left. News stories that cite these results must credit SurveyUSA of Verona, NJ and the sponsoring media organization from each state.
