Summary
This poll, fielded May 20-24, 2005, is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on the current presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. Respondents were asked to give their opinions of President George W. Bush and his handling of the presidency, foreign policy, the economy, the situation with Iraq, terrorism, and Social Security. Respondents were also asked what they thought about Hilary Clinton, Tom Delay, and Gloria Steinem. Some questions dealt with the issue of how judges should be appointed. These included how long it should take Congress to review and confirm appointed judges, whether Democrats and Republicans should be in agreement to confirm someone as a federal judge, whether it should take 51 or 60 votes to confirm a federal judicial or Supreme Court nominee, and how important they thought it was who sat on the federal court. The respondents were also queried on filibusters and whether they thought they were good, or if eliminating them in the future would be better. Additionally, they were asked whether it was the government's responsibility to provide a decent standard of living for the elderly. The issue of self-investment in Social Security was also raised. Respondents were asked if they thought it was a good idea to allow individuals to invest portions of their Social Security taxes themselves. Other questions included if the respondent thought it would be okay if people only pay Social Security taxes on the first 90,000 dollars of their income, whether it would be okay to limit the rate of growth of future Social Security benefits for people who make 100,000 dollars or more, and if they agreed with the changes George W. Bush was proposing. Respondent's religious views and religiosity were also queried. They were asked if they believed in teachings or philosophies from more than one religion and if they were familiar with the teachings of any Eastern religions. They were also asked if they considered themselves feminists and whether the overall status of women in this country had gotten better over the years. Demographic variables include race, sex, age, level of education, income, voter registration status, political ideology, party affiliation, marital status, religious affiliation, employment status, and if there were a teen in the household between the ages of 12 and 17
