America’s stock pick: Google tops Facebook
Amid the buzz about Facebook’s planned initial public stock offering, we asked Americans whether they’d rather buy Facebook or Google stock.
By a 2-1 margin, Google prevailed: 46% Google, 22% Facebook, and 32% expressed no opinion.
Here’s the question we asked in our national scientific telephone poll: “If you had $1,000 to invest in the stock of Facebook or Google, which company’s stock would you rather buy?”
A deep dive into the poll results (see crosstabs below) shows men, women, and every age group, race, and political group picked Google stock over Facebook stock.
The poll’s crosstabs: Poll Position crosstabs – Facebook or Google.
Poll Position’s scientific telephone survey of 1,145 registered voters nationwide was conducted January 31, 2012 and has a margin of error of ±3%. Poll results are weighted to be a representative sampling of all American adults.
