Summary
This poll, conducted September 9-13, 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 United States campaign against terrorism, the situation with Iraq, and the needs of the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Those polled expressed their opinion on whether they felt Bush was a strong leader that understood the problems facing the respondent. Respondents were also queried on how confident they felt about George W. Bush's ability to make the right decisions concerning the war in Iraq and dealing with the problems faced by those affected by Hurricane Katrina. Furthermore, respondents were asked how much they thought George W. Bush cared for Blacks, the poor, those affected by Hurricane Katrina, and people like the respondents, themselves. A series of questions asked the respondents if they would be willing to pay premiums to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina. These included more taxes and higher prices for gasoline. Additionally, a group of questions concerning gas prices asked how the prices affected the respondent, if the Bush Administration had a clear plan for keeping gas prices down, how much influence the president had in controlling gas prices, and if they thought gas prices would go up, down, or stay the same in the next few months. Respondents were also queried on what they felt about the appointment of Appeals Court Judge John G. Roberts to the United States Supreme Court, what they thought of him, his level of conservatism, and if the Senate should scrutinize him more since he was nominated for chief justice. Those queried were also asked about the war in Iraq including whether President Bush had a clear exit strategy for the American troops, and if the war was preventing him from dealing with domestic issues. Demographic variables include race, sex, age, level of education, income, voter registration status, political ideology, party affiliation, evangelical Christian, veteran status, and religion
