Summary
This poll 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 comment on whether they felt things in the United States were going in the right direction, and to give their approval rating of George Bush with respect to his handling of the presidency and the economy. In addition, respondents were asked to assess Bush's ultimate place in history and his handling of the presidential transition. Questions were also posed about Bill Clinton, including whether the respondent approved of Clinton's choice of cabinet members and the potential effects his administration would have on the economy. Respondents also gave their approval rating of Bush's decision to send troops into Somalia, assessed the length of United States involvement in that area, and offered opinions about whether homosexuals should be allowed to serve in the military. Much of the poll focused on issues of sexual harassment in the workplace and the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Clarence Thomas, including Anita Hill's testimony alleging sexual harassment. Respondents were asked whether they believed these charges and whether Thomas was fit to serve on the bench. Those polled were asked to estimate the incidence of sexual harassment in the workplace, to relate their personal experiences with sexual harassment, and to identify situations in the workplace that would be indicative of sexual harassment. Respondents were also asked for their opinions of recent allegations of sexual harassment involving Senator Robert Packwood and his response to those charges, how Congress should handle this particular case, and how frequently they thought sexual harassment by members of Congress occurred. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, voter registration status, most recent presidential vote choice, education, age, area of residence, employment status, Hispanic origin, household income, and gender
