Summary
This data collection is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that evaluate the Reagan presidency and solicit opinions on a variety of political and social issues. Respondents were asked if they were registered to vote, if they thought the country was going in the right direction, if they approved of Reagan's handling of the presidency and if after eight years it was time for a change of direction, and if they had a favorable or unfavorable impression of George Bush, Michael Dukakis, Dan Quayle, and Lloyd Bentsen. Additional questions put to respondents included which party's presidential ticket they would vote for if the election were held that day, the strength of their support for the named candidates, and the importance of certain issues in deciding how they would vote for president including issues such as abortion, prayer in schools, the Pledge of Allegiance in schools, the Strategic Defense Initiative, taxes, crime, drugs, child care, the federal budget deficit, and the environment. Other topics covered included Bush's choice of Quayle and Dukakis' choice of Bentsen as running mates, and the effectiveness of each candidate in dealing with problems such as keeping the United States out of war, controlling inflation, helping the poor and the elderly, reducing the drug problem, improving education and the schools, and maintaining a strong national defense. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, 1984 presidential vote choice, likelihood of voting in the 1988 election, education, age, religion, marital status, household composition, labor union membership, employment status, race, income, sex, and state/region of residence
