Summary
This data collection contains information on the opinions of United States congressmen and women on their roles in Congress, the roles and functions of Congress, congressional organizations and procedures, and the problems and effectiveness of Congress. Three general types of respondents were interviewed: general, leader, and top leader respondents. Respondents were asked about their position on various proposals for congressional reorganization, such as the use of electronic voting devices, four-year terms of office, and year-long congressional sessions, and their opinions on the likelihood of these proposals being adopted. Other items probed their views on issues such as the protection of minority interests, party bloc vote, moral-based decisions, rule of the majority, equality of Congress and the Executive branch, party compromise, degree of influence of lobbyists, and pressing congressional problems. Demographic items specify age, occupation, education, previous political experience, political party affiliation, length of service in Congress, congressional leadership position, ranks, and committee membership and functions, as well as voting records, constituency characteristics by region and district, percentage of total party unity votes, conservative coalition support, and bipartisan support
