WASHINGTON – A plurality of likely U.S. voters disapprove when candidates receive campaign contributions from out-of-state donors and are likewise unmoved by out-of-state celebrity and political endorsements, according to a poll released Monday.
The Rasmussen Reports poll found that 41 percent of the respondents said they have a negative impression when a candidate receives substantial out-of-state contributions, compared with 10 percent who said they have a favorable impression when a candidate receives substantial out of state contributions. Meanwhile, 45 percent said of out-of-state contributions do not affect how they might vote.

The sampling included 1,000 likely voters and was carried out Oct. 9-10. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points.
