Summary
This poll, conducted October 11-15, 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. The focus of this data collection was the upcoming election in Ohio. Ohio residents were asked whether they approved of the way President George W. Bush was handling the presidency and issues such as foreign policy and the economy. Respondents were asked about how well Ohio Senator George Voinovich, Ohio Governor Bob Taft, and members of the United States Congress were doing their jobs, whether the country and the state of Ohio were moving in the right direction, and the condition of the national and Ohio state economy. Those polled were asked how much attention they had paid to the 2006 election campaigns in Ohio, the likelihood that they would vote and for whom, their level of enthusiasm, which issues were most important in their vote, and whether their clergyman had endorsed a particular political candidate or party. Opinions were solicited on senatorial candidates Mike DeWine and Sherrod Brown, gubernatorial candidates Ted Strickland and Kenneth Blackwell, and the Democratic and Republican parties. Respondents were also asked about the voting method they planned to use, the accuracy of voting methods in Ohio and across the country, and whether George W. Bush legitimately won the 2004 presidential election. Additional topics addressed non-partisan elections, corruption in Ohio politics, the Mike Foley incident, the war in Iraq, illegal immigration, North Korea, restrictions on free trade, and a proposed minimum wage increase. Information was also collected on whether anyone in the household had been unemployed in the past year, whether the respondent or a family member had served in the armed forces in Iraq, and whether they knew someone currently serving in Iraq. Demographic information includes sex, age, race, education level, household income, marital status, household union membership, voter registration status and participation history, religious preference, frequency of religious attendance, political party affiliation, political philosophy, length of time living at current residence, type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural), whether respondents had children, and whether they considered themselves born-again Christians
