Summary
This special topic poll, fielded January 5, 1997, solicited public opinion on Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. Respondents were asked whether they had heard about the United States House of Representatives Ethics Committee investigation into his use of tax-exempt contributions for political activities, and whether they would approve of his re-election as Speaker of the House before the investigation was complete. Views were also sought on how well President Bill Clinton was handling the presidency, which one of the charges against him was the most serious, whether congressional hearings should be held to investigate illegal campaign contributions taken by the Democratic Party from foreign businessmen, and whether respondents had learned anything since the 1996 presidential election that would make them want to change their vote. Additional questions regarding Newt Gingrich and President Clinton asked whether they were more or less honest than most people in public life, whether criticism against them was based on ethics or political gain, and whether the media coverage of them was fair. Demographic variables include sex, age, race, education level, household income, type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural), political party affiliation, political philosophy, for whom respondents voted in the 1996 presidential and United States House of Representatives elections, and whether they had a child entering ninth grade in September 1996
