Summary
This poll 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. Respondents were asked whether they approved of Bill Clinton's handling of his job as president and whether he was a strong and decisive leader. They were also asked to rate Clinton's handling of the nation's economy, foreign affairs, the federal budget deficit, and the federal response to the flooding in the Midwest. Those queried were also asked in detail about Clinton's economic plan -- specifically, whether they supported the increase in federal tax on gasoline and diesel fuel, the new federal tax rate on upper-income families, raising the tax on Social Security benefits, the increase in the federal business tax rate, and spending cuts in Medicare. Other topics included abortion, the situation in Serbia and Bosnia, and whether the respondent approved of United States airstrikes against Bosnian Serbs. The Roman Catholic Church was also a focus of this monthly survey, with specific questions on church policies and moral rules. Demographic background variables include political orientation, sex, age, race, income, and education
