WASHINGTON, D.C. – June 9, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — On Tuesday, June 14 at 1:30 p.m., the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) will host a media teleconference to reveal the results of a national poll looking at voter attitudes toward homeownership and key housing policy issues.

The poll of 2,000 likely voters in the 2012 presidential election finds that respondents want the government to develop policies to encourage growth in the housing market, not create barriers to achieving the American dream. Results reveal voter attitudes towards key housing issues including the mortgage interest deduction and lending policies, and how those feelings would translate at the voting booth. Poll results showing a surprising intensity of opinions will be broken down by political affiliation and “swing seats” closely watched by renowned political analysts Charlie Cook and Chris Cillizza.

The poll 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 Jonathan Voss, senior analyst with Lake Research Partners will analyze the poll results, while NAHB first vice chairman Barry Rutenberg will discuss its implications on various housing policy issues.

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