Summary
This poll, conducted December 15-18, 2005, is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on the current 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 and issues such as the economy, health care, and the situation in Iraq. Views were sought on the most important problem for President Bush and the United States Congress to deal with in the upcoming year, and respondents rated their level of optimism in regard to issues such as the nation's defense against natural disasters and possible terrorist attacks. Respondents were asked whether they would be more likely to vote for a Democratic or Republican candidate if the November 2006 congressional election were held today, and whether they approved of the way the members of Congress and their own representative were doing their jobs. The poll also elicited views on whether the war with Iraq was worth fighting, whether United States military forces in Iraq should be increased, decreased, or remain the same, and whether a deadline should be set for their withdrawal. Other questions asked whether progress was being made in Iraq and whether its recent elections brought the United States closer to the withdrawal of its military forces. Additional topics focused on illegal immigration, abortion, recent Supreme Court Justice nominee Samuel Alito, the use of torture on and secret detainment of suspected terrorists in the United States campaign against terrorism, and whether respondents preferred the greeting "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays." Demographic variables include age, sex, race, education level, voter registration status, household income, political party affiliation, political philosophy, religious affiliation, type of residential area, and frequency of religious service attendance
