Summary
This poll, conducted July 21-25, 2006, 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 W. Bush was handling the presidency, the economy and the situation in North Korea, whether they approved of the way the United States Congress was handling its job, whether things in the country were going in the right direction, and what was the most important problem the country was facing. Opinions were collected on the condition of the national economy and whether respondents would vote for the Republican candidate or the Democratic candidate if the election for United States House of Representatives were being held that day. Several questions asked for respondents' opinions of Vice President Dick Cheney, former first lady Hillary Clinton, Arizona Senator John McCain, former Vice President Al Gore, the Republican and Democratic parties, the Bush administration, and the country of Israel. Respondents were asked whether the government had a positive impact on most people's lives, whether there was a mutual respect between George W. Bush and leaders of other countries, whether it was a good idea for the president to have the authority to make changes in rights guaranteed by the Constitution during wartime, and whether they thought the Bush administration went too far in restricting people's civil liberties. A series of questions asked about the war in Iraq, the threat of terrorism, how much respondents knew about the United States government holding suspected terrorists at the military prison in Guantanamo Bay, and whether the United States should follow international agreements for treatment of prisoners of war. Additional topics addressed gasoline prices, the federal minimum wage, illegal immigration, stem cell research, the conflict between Israel and Hezbollah militants in Lebanon, and the development of weapons in North Korea. Demographic information includes voter registration status and participation history, political party affiliation, political philosophy, marital status, sex, religious preference, education level, age, household income, race, whether respondents had any children under the age of 18, and the presence of household members between the ages of 13 and 24
