Summary
This special topic poll, fielded in April 1995, was undertaken to assess respondent approval ratings on job performance for President Clinton, Speaker of the House of Representatives Newt Gingrich, Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole, the Democrats and Republicans in Congress, the respondent's representative in Congress, and the United States Congress in general. Respondents were asked to evaluate the ability of Congress to deal with the big issues facing the country, how much Congress had accomplished within the past three months, and whether that represented a real change in the way Congress worked. Those polled were asked whether the Democrats and/or Republicans were doing what the respondent wanted done, and they were also asked to evaluate whether the Republicans in Congress or President Clinton was doing a better job with the main problems and needs of the country. On the subject of the Republicans in Congress, respondents were asked to evaluate how many of the items of the "Contract with America" they would support, and whether any of the items, in their view, had been accomplished. Respondents were also asked to evaluate President Clinton and Speaker Gingrich on traits such as strength in leadership, honesty, and trustworthiness. In addition, respondent views were solicited on issues such as privatization of welfare, line-item vetoes, and who they believed was responsible for failure of particular congressional initiatives, such as term limits. Demographic information gathered included political party identification, voter registration status, voting record, political philosophy, level of education, age, sex, religious preference, ethnicity, yearly household income, and willingness for call-back
