Summary
This poll is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicits public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. This survey, fielded November 11-14, 2006, is a call-back of the October 27-31, 2006, cohort CBS NEWS/NEW YORK TIMES MONTHLY POLL #4, OCTOBER 2006 (ICPSR 4647). In the poll conducted prior to the election, respondents gave their opinions of President George W. Bush and his handling of the presidency, and issues such as foreign policy and the economy. Respondents were asked about the upcoming midterm elections, how well members of the United States Congress were doing their jobs, whether the country was moving in the right direction, and the condition of the national economy. Views were also sought on the war in Iraq, corrupt politics in Washington, DC, environmental protection, illegal immigration, North Korea's development of weapons, and gay marriage. In the call-back poll conducted a week following the election, respondents were asked whether they had voted in the United States House of Representatives election and for whom, when they decided for whom they would vote, and whether they were pleased with the outcome of the elections for Congress. Those polled were again asked their opinions of President George W. Bush and his handling of the presidency and Iraq, whether they had favorable opinions of the Republican and Democratic parties, and whether George W. Bush and the Democrats in Congress would be able to work together. Information was collected on whether the president's political party and the political party that controls Congress should be the same, the effect the Democratic party might have on issues such as taxes, the minimum wage, and the threat of terrorism, and whether the United States did the right thing in taking military action against Iraq. Information was also collected on which voting method respondents used, and the likelihood that they would participate in an exit poll. Demographic information includes voter registration status and participation history, political party affiliation, political philosophy, marital status, sex, religious preference, frequency of religious attendance, education level, age, household income, race, whether respondents had any children under the age of 18, household union membership, military service, length of time living at current residence, and type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural)
