In addition, respondents were asked if they agreed or disagreed with a series of statements regarding Reagan's policies and performance, and what changes they perceived as a result of the Reagan presidency in areas such as military power, federal spending, and United States influence in the world. Topics covered in the series of questions relating to drugs include legalization of cocaine, the respondent's degree of concern about various problems relating to illegal drugs, if illegal drugs were a problem in the respondent's general neighborhood, high school, and workplace, mandatory drug testing, and various proposed measures to reduce the drug problem.
