Summary
This poll, conducted September 6-9, 2001, is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. Respondents were asked to give their opinions of President George W. Bush and his handling of the presidency, the economy, foreign affairs, environmental issues, education, the energy situation, patients' rights in the healthcare system, Social Security, the federal budget, the cost of prescription drugs, and the defense/military budget. Their views were sought on the state of the nation's economy, including effects of the recently enacted $1.4 trillion tax cut and whether the economy was headed toward a recession. A series of questions addressed recent estimates that the federal budget surplus was much lower than earlier forecasts showed. Respondents were asked whether they were worried about such estimates, and who or what was most to blame for the lower surplus -- Bush, congressional Democrats, the tax cut passed by Congress and signed by Bush, or a slowing national economy. Those queried were asked whether they supported or opposed the following ways the government could handle the shrinking surplus: taking surplus money from the Social Security program and spending it on other programs, reducing the size of the tax cut, dropping plans to increase spending on education, dropping plans to improve prescription drug benefits for senior citizens, or dropping plans to increase military spending. An additional question solicited views on whether the country should follow the direction of the Bush administration or whether the country should follow the lead of congressional Democrats. Background information on respondents includes age, gender, political party, political orientation, voter participation history, education, Hispanic origin, and household income
