Summary
This poll, fielded March 17, 2003, 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. This survey was a call-back of the March 15-16, 2003, cohort (CBS NEWS MONTHLY POLL #3, MARCH 2003 [ICPSR 3756]), and was conducted to assess respondent views regarding President George W. Bush's address to the nation earlier that evening. Respondents were asked to give their opinions of Bush and his handling of the presidency and the situation in Iraq, as well as the ultimatum issued during his speech, demanding that Iraqi President Saddam Hussein leave Iraq within 48 hours or face military action. Respondent views were sought on whether they approved of the use of military action to remove Hussein from power, whether diplomatic solutions had been exhausted, whether a peaceful resolution remained possible, and whether the United States should have waited for United Nations approval before issuing the ultimatum. Those polled were asked about the implications of a war with Iraq: whether the removal of Hussein was worth the potential loss of American life, whether the threat of terrorism against the United States would increase, whether greater instability in the Middle East would result, and whether the likely outcome would be quick and successful or long and costly involvement by the United States. In addition, respondents were asked whether the United States should have called for a United Nations vote on military action against Iraq, even though they thought they would lose, and whether the issuance of the ultimatum had left respondents worried or relieved. Background information on respondents includes age, gender, voter registration and participation history, political party, political orientation, marital status, religion, education, Hispanic descent, race, children in household, and household income
