The American Hardware Manufacturers Association (AHMA) Industry Confidence Index included questions about running mates and political agendas.
The April Confidence Index survey asked two supplemental questions of AHMA members:
“Assuming Mitt Romney becomes the Republican candidate for president, which of the following would you most like to see selected as his vice presidential running mate?”
More than half -- 52% -- responded “Marco Rubio.” Forty percent responded, “Chris Christie,” and 8% responded, “Paul Ryan.”
The AHMA also asked: “Do you think the National Labor Relations Board under the Obama administration has been pushing a pro-union agenda?”
The answer was a resounding yes. Eighty-five percent responded, “Yes.” Rounding out the answers, 8% responded, “Not Sure,” and 8% responded, “No.”
