- Written by Mark Kuhar
January 30, 2012 – A new nationwide poll shows that most voters want this year’s presidential candidates to take stronger positions on both manufacturing and infrastructure issues. The nonpartisan Clarus Poll found that 70 percent of the national electorate would be more inclined to vote for a presidential candidate with a strong position on America’s manufacturing industries and jobs while a solid 65 percent also said they’d be more inclined to vote for a candidate with a strong position on rebuilding the nation’s infrastructure. Among all voters, only Mitt Romney is rated more positively than negatively on the manufacturing issue. Among all voters, only Barack Obama is rated more positively than negatively on the infrastructure issue.
