Summary
In addition to identifying the most important problems facing the country, evaluating the Bush presidency, and providing a snapshot of current voter preference for George Bush, Bill Clinton, and Ross Perot during the 1992 presidential campaign, this special topic poll focused on the issue of race relations. Respondents were asked if they had read or heard anything about the verdict in the Rodney King case in Los Angeles in which a group of white officers were accused of beating a Black man, whether the police officers should have been found guilty of a crime, and whether they approved of Bush's handling of the situation following the King verdict in Los Angeles. Those surveyed were asked if they thought the assistance programs for poor people begun in the 1960s and 1970s had helped or hurt poor people, whether government assistance programs had been the right way to help the poor, and whether the problems in America's inner cities were getting better. Respondents were also asked to identify the real causes of problems in the inner cities from a list of potential causes including the failure of President Bush and former President Ronald Reagan to deal with the problems of the inner cities, and the failure of social assistance programs to help inner-city residents. In addition, respondents were asked to identify what might be done to avoid racial violence and riots in America's cities from a list including more police, more activities for inner-city teenagers and young adults, and better schools and public education. Those surveyed were ultimately asked if the problems of the inner cities were so great that they would never be solved. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, voter registration status, education, age, Hispanic origin, household income, and sex
