Summary
This poll, conducted October 30-November 2, 2005, 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 give their opinions of President George W. Bush and his handling of the presidency, foreign policy, the economy, the United States campaign against terrorism, the situation with Iraq, gasoline prices, and health care. Those polled expressed their opinion on whether they felt Bush was a strong leader that understood the problems facing the respondent. Respondents were also queried on the Bush Administration regarding their confidence in it, its policies, and the amount of influence that various individuals and religious groups had on it. Additionally, they were asked whether they felt that the Democrats or the Republicans would be better suited to handle the nation's main problems and which of the two parties represented their own values and needs better. They were also asked to compare the differences in honesty between the two parties. Another topic of the survey was the upcoming November 2006 congressional election. Respondents were asked which party they would vote for if the election were held at the time of this survey. Questions concerning the ethics of President Bush and the federal government were also included. Some of the questions examined the war in Iraq. These included costs versus benefits, acceptance of the number of United States casualties, progress toward restoring civil order and establishing a democratic government, and whether the United States should keep or withdraw military forces in Iraq. A series of additional questions asked the respondents to give their opinions on whether the charge brought against the vice president's chief of staff, Lewis Libby, was serious or minor. Respondents were also asked if presidential advisor Karl Rove, Vice President Dick Cheney, and President Bush did anything wrong in connection to the case. Demographic variables include race, sex, age, level of education, income, voter registration status, political ideology, party affiliation, and religion
