Summary
This survey sought respondents' views before and after the first presidential debate on September 25, 1988. Before the debate, respondents were asked their opinions of the Republican and Democratic candidates for president and vice-president, how likely they were to vote in the presidential elections in November of 1988, how they would vote in the election, how they would vote if only voting for president or vice-president, and what they thought should be the most important issue in the election. Respondents were questioned about Dukakis's and Bush's competence and judgment, their abilities to deal with international crises, manage the federal government, handle the national defense. They also were asked if George Bush was hiding information about the Iran-Contra matter and if Dan Quayle was qualified to be president. In addition, respondents were asked whether they would watch the presidential debate, how much difference they expected the debate to make in their voting decision, and which candidate was the better debater. They were questioned about their previous voting behavior and about their attention to the presidential campaign. After the debate, respondents were recontacted and asked who won the debate, whether there was one thing the candidates did or said that impressed them the most, how the debate affected their opinions of the presidential candidates, whether they had a better idea of what the candidates stood for, whose positions they agreed with more, whether the candidates spent more time explaining or attacking during the debate, whether the candidates answered questions or avoided them, whether the journalists on the panel asked relevant questions, and how they would vote in the presidential election. Background information on individuals includes party affiliation, liberal to conservative identification, employment status, farm employment, marital status, age, income, religious preference, labor union membership, ethnicity, and education
