Summary
This data collection examines attitudes of delegates to the 1988 Democratic National Convention on a variety of social and political issues. Major areas of investigation include delegates' views on ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment, raising taxes to deal with the federal budget deficit, using the CIA to undermine hostile foreign governments, reinstituting the military draft, outlawing abortion, government provision of a national health care program, and reducing the military budget. Delegates also were asked where they would place Michael Dukakis on a scale running from very liberal to very conservative, whom they favored for the vice presidential nomination, if they would work enthusiastically for Dukakis if he won the nomination, if it would be a good or a bad idea to have Jesse Jackson as the vice presidential nominee, and if they agreed with several statements proposed for the party platform such as calling South Africa a terrorist state and putting a freeze on defense spending. Profiles of the delegates include participation in Democratic party affairs, elected or appointed public positions currently held, self-placement on a liberal/conservative scale, prior attendance at a national convention, candidate voted for on the first ballot at the 1984 national convention, the candidate the delegate would vote for on the first ballot at the 1988 convention, education, age, religion, marital status, labor union membership, employment status, race, sex, income, and region of residence
