Summary
This data collection is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that evaluates the Reagan presidency and solicits opinions on a variety of political and social issues. Topics covered include the drought occurring in the United States, recent charges of corruption at the Pentagon, the resignation of Edwin Meese as attorney general, the United States military presence in the Persian Gulf, and the downing of an Iranian airliner by the United States Navy. In addition, respondents were asked if they would vote for Michael Dukakis or George Bush if the election were held that day, if they had a favorable or unfavorable impression of various political figures, if the political views of Bush and Dukakis were too liberal or too conservative for the respondent, who the respondent would like to see as running mates if Bush and Dukakis won their parties' nominations, and how the candidates compared with respect to their positions on income taxes. Respondents also were asked if they agreed or disagreed with statements pertaining to a number of issues such as the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment, raising taxes to deal with the federal budget deficit, government provision of a national health care program, reducing the military budget, outlawing abortion, using the CIA to undermine hostile foreign governments, reinstituting the military draft, and calling South Africa a terrorist state. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, 1984 presidential vote choice, sex, education, age, religion, marital status, household composition, labor union membership, employment status, race, income, and state/region of residence
