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 if they approved of President George W. Bush's handling of the campaign against terrorism, foreign policy, and the economy. Those queried were also asked for their views on the current condition of the economy, whether it was getting better or worse, and whether they were optimistic or pessimistic about the next three years with Bush as president. Respondents were asked to indicate what they liked best and least about what he had done so far. Respondents were asked whether they approved of Dick Cheney's handling of his role as Vice President and how he compared with previous vice presidents. Next, respondents were queried on their opinions of the war in Afghanistan and how it was going for the United States. Respondents' views on a number of issues related to Social Security and their retirement were elicited as well. The collapse of the Texas-based energy company, Enron, was the focus of the next set of questions. Respondents were asked how much they had heard regarding Enron, and whether they felt Enron chairperson Kenneth Lay, other Enron executives, or anyone in the Bush administration had done anything wrong with respect to the company's collapse. Respondents were asked whether they felt policy decisions had ever been changed by politicians as a direct result of campaign contributions from major contributors, and whether they felt the oil and energy industries had too much or too little influence on the Bush administration. Also regarding Enron, respondents were asked whether senior executives should have been able to sell their stock in the company prior to its collapse, and whether the federal government should have intervened to prevent the collapse. Next, respondents were queried on how they felt regarding their civil liberties: whether they were concerned about losing some liberties as a result of the Bush administration's campaign against terrorism, and whether they would be willing to give up certain liberties in order to reduce the threat of terrorism. Background information on respondents includes age, gender, race, religion, education, political party, political orientation, marital status, number of children in the household, and income
