Summary
This poll, fielded January 22, 1998, 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 Bill Clinton and his moral values compared to those of others in public life, as well as their opinions of Vice President Al Gore. A series of questions addressed former Arkansas state employee Paula Jones's sexual harassment lawsuit against Clinton, specifically whether Clinton was guilty or innocent of the charges. Those queried were also asked for their opinions on the alleged affair between President Clinton and then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Topics covered Clinton's guilt or innocence, whether Clinton encouraged Lewinsky to lie under oath, the overall importance of this allegation to the nation, and whether this scandal had interfered with Clinton's ability to govern. Additional questions addressed the possible outcomes of these charges against the president, including resignation and impeachment, how these scandals compared to former President Richard Nixon and Watergate, and whether Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr was conducting an impartial investigation. The results of the poll were aired on the television program "48 Hours." Background variables include age, race, sex, ethnicity, education, religion, political party, political orientation, voter participation history, and family income
