Summary
This poll, fielded March 9, 1997, 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 to give their opinions of President Bill Clinton and his handling of the presidency. Respondents were asked whether campaign finance laws needed to be reformed, how closely they had paid attention to the 1996 Democratic campaign fundraising activities and whether anything bothered them about it, and whether Congress or an independent counsel should hold hearings to investigate the fundraising practices and the White House involvement in them. A series of questions asked respondents whether they thought Bill Clinton and Vice President Al Gore had personally done anything wrong in the campaign fundraising activities, how important an issue the fundraising situation was to the nation, and whether the fundraising practices were common practices for both political parties and for the president and vice president. Views were sought on whether many public officials, including Bill Clinton, had made policy decisions as a direct result of the money he received from major campaign contributors, whether respondents thought Bill Clinton and Republicans in Congress were serious about wanting to reform campaign financing, and whether it was fair to compare the campaign fundraising controversy with Watergate. Additional questions asked whether they would favor public financing for congressional candidates, which political party raised more federal election campaign money in 1996, and whether Al Gore should be nominated as the Democratic Party's presidential nominee in 2000. Demographic variables include sex, race, age, household income, education level, political party affiliation, political philosophy, and voter participation history and registration status
