Summary
This poll, fielded December 9-12, 2010, is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. A national sample of 1,001 adults was surveyed. Respondents were asked whether they approved of the way Barack Obama was handling the presidency, the economy, the war in Afghanistan, and the federal budget deficit. They were also asked whether they trusted President Obama or the Republicans in Congress more to do a better job with the economy, the federal budget deficit, the threat of terrorism, the situation in Afghanistan, health care reform, helping the middle class, and handling taxes. They were queried whether they thought the switch of control of the House of Representative from Democrats to Republicans was a good thing, whether the recession has hurt them financially, whether they thought the economy has begun to recover, whether anyone living in their household had been laid off or lost their job in the last year, and whether any close friends or immediate family members had been laid off or lost their job. They were asked what they thought was the best approach to the health care reform law, whether Obama was sincere in wanting to reduce the federal budget deficit, whether efforts to reduce the federal deficit should be taken now, and the best way to reduce the federal budget deficit. They were asked whether homosexuals who do not publicly disclose their sexual orientation should be allowed to serve in the military, whether the war in Afghanistan had contributed to the long term security of the United States, whether they supported the increase of United States and NATO forces, and whether United States forces should start withdrawing sooner than summer 2011. They were also queried on whether they heard about the released classified documents pertaining to the State Department and United States diplomacy by WikiLeaks and whether WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange should be arrested and charged with a crime for releasing these confidential documents. Respondents were also asked for whom they would vote for in the next presidential election. Demographic variables include sex, age, race, marital status, household income, education level, political party affiliation, political philosophy, political ideology, religious preference, whether they voted in the last election, and whether the respondent is a born-again Christian
