Summary
This poll, fielded October 7-9, 1996, 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. The survey solicited public opinion prior to and immediately following the vice-presidential debate held October 9, 1996. Respondents were asked to give their opinions of President Bill Clinton and his handling of the presidency and issues such as foreign policy. Several questions asked how much respondents had been paying attention to the presidential campaign, whether they were likely to vote in the election for president, which candidate they would vote for if the presidential elections were being held that day, whether they had favorable opinions of the candidates, and who they expected to win. Opinions were collected on the condition of the national economy, how taxes would be affected based on which candidate was voted president, whether respondents preferred the federal budget deficit to be reduced or taxes to be cut, and whether the government could reduce the deficit and cut taxes at the same time. Respondents were asked whether they watched Sunday's debate between Bill Clinton and Bob Dole, which candidate did the best job or won, whether they learned anything new about the candidates, and how likely it was that they would watch the October 9 vice-presidential debate. The call-back poll, conducted on October 9, 1996, concerned respondents' reactions about the debate between Al Gore and Jack Kemp. Views were sought on whether respondents watched the debate, which candidate did the best job or won, whether the candidates addressed issues that mattered, whether respondents had changed their minds about their choice for vice president, and for whom they would vote had the elections been held that day. Demographic variables include sex, race, age, household income, education level, political party affiliation, political philosophy, voter participation history and registration status, whether respondents had any children starting ninth grade, length of time living at current residence, and type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural)
