Summary
This poll, fielded March 10-11, 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 and issues such as foreign policy. Respondents were asked to list the most important problem facing the country, whether they were generally optimistic about the future for the United States, and whether they approved of the way Congress was handling their job. Several questions asked whether respondents had been paying attention to the presidential campaign, which candidate they would vote for if the presidential election were being held that day, and whether they had favorable opinions of the candidates. Opinions were collected on who was the leader of the Republican party, whether the country is better off with a president who has a lot of government experience, and whether they approved of the way Bob Dole was handling his job as majority leader of the United States Senate. Various questions concerned Bob Dole's age and how it would affect him if elected president, whether his experience in government was a positive thing, and whether he made his accomplishments clear. Respondents were asked several questions about the presidential candidates and whether they thought each candidate was addressing issues that matter, whether the candidates were influenced by special interests, whether they had new ideas, and whether they would deal wisely with a difficult international crisis. A series of questions asked whether the current method of nominating presidential candidates allowed people to learn enough about the candidates, whether it gave too much power to the very first states, whether it cost too much money, and whether it produced the best candidates. Information was also collected on whether respondents considered themselves part of the conservative Christian movement and whether they listened to political call-in radio shows. Additional topics included a constitutional amendment to outlaw abortion, television political analysts, and negative political advertisements. Demographic variables include sex, race, age, household income, education level, political party affiliation, political philosophy, voter participation history and registration status, and type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural)
