Summary
This dataset was designed to provide information on the personal and political backgrounds, political attitudes, and relevant behavior of party leaders. Data are presented on delegates to the 1978 Democratic Mid-Term Party Conference. Questions focus on the "representativeness" of the party elites who are selected to go to such conferences and also probe for the views of the delegates on a number of important issues related to the "reform" era in the political party and for their opinions on what a national party is and should be. The representation of minorities and females in the process received particular attention as did a comparison of the views of the party professionals. Specific variables include characterization of the respondent's political beliefs on the liberal-conservative scale, length of time the respondent had been active in the Democratic party, and respondent's opinions on minorities in the party, party unity, national- and local-level party strength, party loyalty, and future direction for the party. In addition, data are provided on the respondent's opinions on certain provisions of the party's Charter. Demographic characteristics are supplied as well
