To better understand how the construction industry views the upcoming presidential election, BuildZoom conducted a survey of licensed remodeling and construction contractors across the US.

The research revealed that:

1. Nearly 3 out of 4 of contractors believe that Mitt Romney would do a better job as president and trust him more to handle economic issues such as the budget deficit, taxation and job creation.

2. Pro-Romney contractors empathize with his business experience and believe he would have a more positive impact on the general economy and construction sector than Obama.

3. Pro-Obama contractors believe he is more in tune with the middle class and are critical of Romney's character and perceived lack of empathy for the middle class.

4. Nearly half of the respondents ported that the Recovery Act hasn't helped at all while 33% responded that it has helped "a little." A majority of contractors (77%) reported that they had not been provided with enough information on how to take advantage of Recovery Act opportunities.

The full findings, data and research methodology are available on the BuildZoom blog:
