Summary
This special topic poll sought public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. Respondents were asked to give their opinions of President Bill Clinton and his handling of the presidency, the economy, and foreign affairs. Those queried were also asked to provide opinions on the United States Congress, the operation of the federal government, and the upcoming November 1998 elections. Respondents were asked to compare the Democratic and Republican platforms in the following areas: the economy, crime, foreign affairs, education, the middle class, taxes, the federal budget, Social Security, Medicare, health care, moral leadership, and dealing with the Monica Lewinsky matter. They were asked to consider the importance given to those issues and the role of Clinton's affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky in their upcoming electoral decisions. Those queried were asked whether they believed that Clinton should remain in office, resign, be impeached, or be censured, if it were determined that he lied under oath or encouraged others to do so. If they answered that Clinton should not be impeached, respondents were asked to explain further. Respondents were asked to describe how impeachment hearings should be carried out, if they were held. Additional topics covered the motivation of Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr and Congress regarding the Lewinsky investigation, and whether respondents believed that this scandal had damaged Clinton's ability to serve effectively as president. Background information on respondents includes age, sex, race, education, political party, political orientation, voter registration and participation history, marital status, religion, family income, and age of children in household
