Summary
This special topic poll sought respondents' views on the presidency, crime in the United States, and race relations. Respondents were asked for their opinions on President Bill Clinton and his handling of the presidency and race relations, whether he had a clear vision for the country, whether he was honest and in possession of moral and ethical standards, whether he was innovative and committed to his beliefs, and whether he understood the needs of the American people. Those queried were asked what they felt were the greatest problems facing the United States today, specifically with respect to crime. Respondents were asked to assess the rate of crime in the country and in their communities, their personal safety, their fear of becoming a victim of violent crime, and their personal experiences with crime. On the topic of race relations, respondents were asked for their opinions on the past and future trends of the Clinton administration in handling race issues. They were asked to assess race relations in the United States, and to comment on whether they believed that Blacks were still discriminated against, and whether preferences in college admissions for minorities should still exist. A series of questions covered the role of race in network entertainment programs. Topics covered the impact of programs whose main characters were primarily of one race, the frequency of such programs, and the impact of programs in which the cast was a mix of people of different races. Finally, respondents were asked if they had close friends of another race, and whether they had either brought that friend to their home or been a guest at the friend's home. Background information on respondents includes age, race, sex, ethnicity, education, political party, political orientation, family income, and demographics of area of residence
