Summary
This special topic poll, fielded October 17-October 20, 1994, was undertaken to assess respondents' views on the candidates in November's election for United States Senate in the state of New Jersey. The candidates included Frank Lautenberg and Chuck Haytaian. Residents of New Jersey were asked to rate the likelihood of their voting in the election, to indicate their voting intentions and preferences for candidates in the election, to comment on the job performances of the candidates, and to identify one or two issues or problems that were the most important to them in deciding who to vote for. Respondents were also queried about their views on which candidate would do more to cut taxes, to fight crime, to support change in Congress, and to battle the special interests, as well as which one was more likely to be a strong leader. Additional questions probed respondents' opinions on whether local property taxes had gone up, who was most to blame for the increase in local property taxes, and what would happen to local property taxes in the next 12 months. Opinions were also solicited on whether respondents approved of Governor Christie Whitman's postponing some of her plans to cut taxes for a year, how likely it was that Governor Whitman would succeed in cutting the income tax by 30 percent within four years, and whether they would like to see Governor Whitman run for vice president in 1996. Other topics addressed whether respondents supported legislation to allow riverboat gambling in the Meadowlands, and whether they supported legislation that would require authorities to notify neighbors, schools, and youth groups whenever a convicted sex offender moved into their community. In addition, respondents were asked to comment on the job performance of President Clinton and Governor Whitman, and whether they believed things in New Jersey were generally going in the right direction. Background information on respondents includes voter registration status, party preference, marital status, education, household income, religious orientation, Hispanic origin, race, age, and sex
