Summary
This poll 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. This survey, fielded December 19-20, 1998, is a call-back of the December 13-15, 1998 (CBS NEWS/NEW YORK TIMES MONTHLY POLL #1, DECEMBER 1998 [ICPSR 2672]), and December 13-17, 1998 (CBS NEWS/NEW YORK TIMES MONTHLY POLL #3, DECEMBER 1998 [ICPSR 2674]), cohorts. Respondents were asked to give their opinions of President Bill Clinton, the United States Congress, Vice President Al Gore, and the Republican and Democratic parties. Those queried were also asked a series of questions about the December 18-19, 1998, House of Representatives' debate and the December 19, 1998, vote to send two articles of impeachment against Clinton to the Senate for a trial, thus impeaching Clinton. Topics covered whether respondents watched the debate or the vote on television, how important the impeachment was to the nation, and whether Clinton should resign or complete his term of office. Respondents who offered an opinion on impeachment that differed from their answers to similar questions in a previous survey were asked to explain what had influenced them. Their views were sought on whether Clinton's actions were serious enough to warrant impeachment, the impact that a Senate trial would have on the nation and the economy, whether Clinton could still be an effective president, whether the Republican party was in touch with what the American public wanted, and how they reacted to Clinton's post-impeachment speech delivered after the House vote on December 19, 1998. Background information on respondents includes age, race, sex, education, religion, political party, political orientation, marital status, voter registration and participation history, Hispanic descent, and family income
