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. Respondents were asked to comment on what they thought was the most important problem facing the country, and to give their approval rating of George Bush with respect to his handling of the presidency, foreign policy, and the economy. Questions were posed regarding respondents' vote intentions for the 1992 presidential election, their opinions of potential 1992 presidential candidates, the likelihood of their voting in either a Republican or Democratic presidential primary or caucus, and the issues that presidential candidates should emphasize. Questions concerning the potential presidential candidates focused on the ability of Bush and Pat Buchanan to care about the needs and problems of people, to end the recession, and to construct a fair tax plan, whether Paul Tsongas, Bill Clinton, and Buchanan had the ability to serve effectively as president, and the influence of Clinton's alleged involvement in an extramarital affair on the respondent's vote. Concerning Bush, respondents were questioned regarding what he might accomplish in a second term, his breaking of the "no new taxes" pledge, and whether he was to blame for the recession. Additional questions dealt with topics such as the importance of having a president with military experience, the condition of the national economy, and the respondent's current financial situation compared to four years ago. Background information on respondents includes sex, age, race, marital status, education, religious preference, family income, political orientation, and party preference
