Summary
This poll, fielded July 18-21, 2007, 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. This poll included an oversample of African American respondents. Respondents were asked whether they approved of the way George W. Bush was handling the presidency and issues such as ethics in government and whether they approved of the way the Vice President Dick Cheney and the United States Congress were handling their jobs. Views were sought on the Iraq war, including whether it was worth fighting, the current number of United States military forces in Iraq, whether a deadline should be set for the withdrawal of troops, and the current strength of the Al Qaeda terrorist network compared to before September 11, 2001. Respondents were also asked how closely they were following the 2008 presidential race, for whom they would vote if the presidential primary or caucus were being held in their state that day, how satisfied they were with the choice of candidates, their opinions of the candidates, and how comfortable they would be with a president who was African American, Hispanic, Jewish, Mormon, or a woman. Additional topics addressed abortion, the use of surveillance cameras in public places, the use of the internet to obtain information on political candidates, whether the federal government was doing enough to ensure the safety of imported products and food, whether the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) should be allowed to regulate cigarettes, and recent United States Supreme court decisions restricting partial birth abortion and how local school boards use race to assign children to schools. Demographic variables includes sex, age, race, marital status, household income, education level, voter registration status, political party affiliation, political philosophy, type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural), religious preference, and whether respondents and their close personal friends or family members served in the United States military in Iraq since March 2003
