Summary
This poll, fielded January 27-28, 1991, 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 whether they approved of the way President George H.W. Bush was handling the presidency and issues such as foreign policy and the economy. Respondents were asked how well members of the United States Congress were doing their jobs, whether the country was moving in the right direction, and the condition of the national economy. Views were sought on the Persian Gulf War including whether the United States did the right thing in taking military action against Iraq, the expected length of the war and number of American casualties, and the effect of the war on the economy, taxes, gasoline prices, and domestic programs. In addition, the survey posed a series of questions dealing with media coverage of the war and the possible holding back of information by the military, the involvement of women in ground combat, the personal effects of the war on respondents, and concern about a possible terrorist attack in the United States. Opinions were sought on the country of Israel, Vice President Dan Quayle, Soviet Union leader Mikhail Gorbachev, and whether the United States should maintain good relations with the Soviet Union or support Lithuania's efforts to break away from the Soviet Union. Respondents were also asked to compare President Bush's first two years in office with former President Reagan's, and whether they would vote for Bush or the Democratic candidate in the presidential election in 1992. Other topics addressed the job of homemaking, and female respondents whose primary work was done in the home or caring for children were asked how they preferred their occupation to be called. Demographic variables include sex, race, age, employment status, marital status, household income, education level, type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural), military service, political party affiliation, political philosophy, and voter registration status and participation history
