Summary
This poll, conducted December 4-5, 1996, 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, First Lady Hillary Clinton and her handling of her role as First Lady, the amount of influence she had on the president's decisions, and whether President Clinton or the Republicans in Congress would have more influence over the direction of the country in the next two years. Other questions focused on Kenneth Starr (the Independent Counsel investigating the Whitewater real estate development project), the acceptance of illegal campaign contributions by the Democratic Party, and whether these scandals would affect President Clinton's second administration. Additional topics queried respondents on their household's financial situation compared to four years before, their perceived level of economic security, affirmative action, the current state of race relations in the United States, how often respondents socialized with co-workers of another race, and the recent racial discrimination lawsuit settlement against Texaco. Demographic variables include sex, age, race, education level, household income, employment status, type of residential area (e.g., urban, rural, etc), political party affiliation, political philosophy, voter registration status and participation history, and whether respondents had a child entering ninth grade in September 1996
