Survey results this week

August 24, 2012 

Have you taken one of our surveys lately?

Here are the latest survey results:

Gov. Nikki Haley’s response to a reporter. Of 1,108 voters, 861, or 73 percent, said they thought Gov. Haley’s refusal to answer a reporter’s question Wednesday was an inappropriate expression of the governor’s displeasure with a journalist or journalist’s publication. Twenty-seven percent, or 319 voters, said the governor’s refusal to answer was a proper expression of the governor’s displeasure.

It’s not too late to weigh in on that and other questions.

Is Kershaw County’s new dress code for teachers too restrictive? So far, 90 percent of voters say “No.”

Would you like to see professional baseball in Columbia? “Yes, you bet!” is right now the leading answer by a 3-to-1 margin.

Does Gov. Mitt Romney’s selection of U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate help or hurt the GOP ticket? So far, there’s only a 3 percentage-point difference among 744 respondents.
