Summary
This special topic poll, conducted September 20-26, 1996, is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of political and social issues. The focus of this data collection was on the upcoming 1996 presidential and congressional elections. Those queried were asked about the likelihood that they would vote, for whom they would vote if the election were held that day, when they decided on their candidate, whether they had learned enough about the candidates to make an informed choice, and whether factors such as leadership and a candidate's stance on issues were major or minor reasons for their vote. Respondents were quizzed on their knowledge of the presidential and vice-presidential candidates, party platforms, campaign funding, which presidential candidate was leading in the polls, and which party had the most members in the United States Congress. Views were sought on the media's treatment of the presidential candidates, campaign advertisements featuring Newt Gingrich and the issue of Medicare, whether presidential campaigns were more negative than in the past, the influence of the recent party conventions, and whether the news media should report public opinion poll results. Other topics addressed abortion, sources of campaign information, how much attention respondents paid to media coverage of the presidential campaign, and whether they cared who won. Demographic variables include sex, age, race, ethnicity, education level, marital status, household income, political party affiliation, political philosophy, labor union membership, voter registration status, religious preference, and whether respondents thought of themselves as born-again or evangelical Christians
