Summary
These polls are part of a continuing series of surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other social and political issues. Respondents were asked to give their opinions of President Ronald Reagan and his handling of the presidency, foreign policy, and the economy. Each file contains a set of unique questions pertaining to broader social issues, such as childrearing and victimization. These national surveys were administered by telephone to respondents selected from eligible household members. In Part 1, January 1981, respondents were asked for their views on President Reagan's likely performance as President with respect to economic and foreign affairs, the release of hostages from Iran, the federal budget, and whether funding should be increased or decreased for certain federal programs. Questions about busing to achieve school integration were also included. For Part 2, April 1981, respondents were asked to evaluate President Reagan's current and future performances in economic and foreign affairs. They were also asked about tax cuts, the federal budget, women's rights, El Salvador, Poland, handguns, and Japanese cars.
