Summary
This special topic poll, conducted October 24-27, 2002, was undertaken to assess public opinion prior to the November 2002 congressional elections. Respondents were asked whether they approved of the way President George W. Bush was handling the presidency, the economy, the United States campaign against terrorism, and the situation with Iraq and Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. Those polled were asked whether they had been following the election closely, whether they were going to vote, and if so, whether they would vote for the Democratic or Republican candidate, and whether their vote would be an expression of support for or opposition to the Bush administration. Their views were sought on the extent to which the following would influence their electoral decision-making: the war on terrorism, Social Security, the economy and jobs, education, health care, prescription drug benefits for the elderly, and the situation with Iraq. Those queried were asked how worried they were about the economy, the possibility of another major terrorist attack in the United States, the performance of the stock market, and efforts by North Korea and Iraq to develop nuclear weapons. Additionally, respondents were asked which political party, Democratic or Republican, would better handle the nation's main problems, whether Bush understood the problems of people like them, whether Bush was to blame for the nation's economic problems, and whether they were satisfied with the way the federal government works. Background information on respondents includes age, gender, voter registration and participation history, political party affiliation, political orientation, education, religion, race, Hispanic origin, labor union membership, financial situation compared with two years ago, and household income
