Summary
This poll, conducted May 19-21, 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 for their opinions of President Bill Clinton and his handling of the presidency, foreign policy, and the economy, as well as their views on the United States Congress, Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, Vice President Al Gore, Federal Reserve Board Chairman Alan Greenspan, Microsoft CEO Bill Gates, former President George Bush, former First Lady Barbara Bush, Texas Governor George W. Bush, and 1996 Florida gubernatorial candidate Jeb Bush. Those queried were asked a series of questions relating to the stock market and the Asian financial crisis, such as their impact on the respondent and on the United States economy. Related topics concerned respondents' investment management and sources of information on investments, including the Internet, and the respondents' opinions on the future of technology and automobile stocks. Respondents were also asked about their feelings toward different countries, especially India and Pakistan.
