AHMA survey treads in political waters
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.”
