Poll: 35% of union members prefer Romney to Obama

2012 Presidential Vote Preferences, by Government Employment and Union Status, April-June 2012

State government union workers are slightly more likely than the average government union worker to support Obama. Still, about three in 10 state workers who are union members and are registered to vote support Romney, underscoring the finding that union members are modestly diverse in their presidential preferences. There were too few union members working for the federal government in this April 11-June 5 sample to analyze meaningfully.
