Summary
The nomination of Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court was the central focus of this survey. Respondents were asked if they approved or disapproved of the nomination, whether the Senate should confirm Thomas's nomination, whether the Supreme Court was too conservative or too liberal in its decisions, and whether the presence of Thomas on the court would make the court more conservative or liberal. Respondents were also queried regarding their awareness of the Senate hearings on Thomas's nomination, if Thomas was one of the best available people for the job, and whether the Senate should consider Thomas's political views as well as his background and qualifications. Further questions included whether the respondent agreed or disagreed with Thomas's opposition to programs that gave minorities preference in jobs and education to make up for past inequalities, whether Thomas understood the concerns of most Black Americans, whether the respondent favored or opposed the 1973 ruling to legalize abortion and if Thomas should be confirmed on the basis of his support or opposition to legalized abortion, whether Thomas should have discussed his views on abortion laws at the confirmation hearings, and whether the opposition to the Thomas nomination by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and National Organization for Women (NOW) influenced the respondent's support for Thomas. Other topics covered in this survey include the Bush presidency, terms used to describe Black Americans, whom the respondent would vote for in a Democratic presidential primary or caucus, Israel and the Palestinians, and relations between Israel and the United States
