Summary
This poll, fielded March 31-April 2, 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. Respondents were asked to give their opinions of President Bill Clinton and his handling of the presidency, foreign policy, and the economy. Respondents were asked about the condition of the national economy, their own household's financial situation, and how well members of the United States Congress were doing their jobs. A series of questions addressed the 1996 presidential election, including how much attention respondents were paying to the election, for whom they would vote, which issues were important in their vote, and the changes that would take place if Bill Clinton or Bob Dole were elected in November. Opinions were solicited on presidential candidates Bill Clinton, Bob Dole, Pat Buchanan, Ralph Nader, and Ross Perot, as well as Elizabeth Dole, Colin Powell, Vice President Al Gore, First Lady Hillary Clinton, and the Democratic and Republican parties. Views were sought on the current primary system, the benefits of a third political party, whether it was better for the president to belong to the same political party that controlled Congress, and the role of the federal government in promoting traditional values and solving national problems. Additional topics addressed abortion, school uniforms, a proposed minimum wage increase, and the V-chip, a computer chip that allowed parents to control television viewing. Information was also collected on whether respondents considered themselves part of the Christian conservative political movement, whether they were employed in a blue-collar job, how concerned they were that they or a member of their household would become unemployed in the next year, and whether they listened to political call-in radio shows. Demographic variables include sex, race, age, household income, education level, type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural), religious preference, political party affiliation, political philosophy, and voter participation history and registration status
