WHEN:

Tuesday, June 7, 2011

1:30 p.m. ET

WHO:

  • Bob Nielsen, chairman of the National Association of Home Builders
  • Neil Newhouse, partner and co-founder of Public Opinion Strategies

WHAT: 

WASHINGTON, D.C. On Tuesday, June 7 at 1:30 p.m., the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) will host a media teleconference to reveal the results of a national survey looking at the value voters place on homeownership. The survey of 2,000 likely voters in the 2012 presidential election finds that, despite the economic downturn and housing crisis, respondents still consider owning a home to be a solid financial investment. The survey examines attitudes on homeownership among current homeowners including those who currently owe more than their house is worth as well as renters, and asks about the biggest barriers to buying a home.

The survey was conducted by Neil Newhouse, partner and co-founder of Public Opinion Strategies, a leading Republican polling company, and Celinda Lake, president of Lake Research Partners, one of the Democratic Party’s leading strategists. During the teleconference, Newhouse and Lake will analyze the survey results while NAHB Chairman Bob Nielsen will discuss its implications on the future of the American Dream.

Members of the media will be given the opportunity to ask questions at the conclusion of the call.
