Summary
This poll 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 handling of the presidency, as well as their opinions of Vice President Al Gore, Senator Fred Thompson, and Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. The investigations into 1996 Democratic campaign fundraising activities were addressed, with questions covering the role of the Chinese government, the future of campaign finance reform, the possibility of the appointment of an independent counsel, the role of President Clinton, and the partisan nature of the current investigations. Those queried were asked for their views on the Paula Jones sexual harassment lawsuit, the United Parcel Service strike, the Food and Drug Administration's ability to protect the public from food-borne illnesses, the use of radiation to sterilize food, and the safety of the country from terrorism. Fans of Elvis Presley were asked whether the singer was dead or alive, if they had visited Graceland, and if they had purchased Elvis memorabilia. Background information on respondents includes age, race, sex, ethnicity, education, religion, political party, political orientation, age of children in household, and family income
