Summary
This special topic poll, fielded April 5-6, 1999, 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 and issues such as foreign policy and the economy. Several questions asked how closely respondents followed foreign news, including the recent bombing of military targets in Yugoslavia by the United States and NATO forces. Respondents were asked whether they approved of the air strikes, their impressions of the conflict in Kosovo, the effect of the air strikes on the conflict and on the United States' relations with Russia, and the likelihood that the conflict would spread to neighboring countries. A series of questions addressed whether the United States should increase its military action in Yugoslavia, the expected number of United States casualties that would result, and whether military action should be restricted to reduce the number of casualties. Other questions addressed the importance of Serbia, Kosovo, and the countries of China, Poland, and South Africa to the United States' interests. Views were also sought on whether the United States had a moral responsibility to become involved in countries where widespread persecution of ethnic groups occurred and whether the United States was doing enough to help Albanian refugees. Information was also collected on whether respondents had access to a computer, Internet access, and e-mail, and whether they had a child graduating from high school in the class of 2000. Demographic variables include sex, race, age, marital status, household income, education level, political party affiliation, political philosophy, voter participation history and registration status, the presence of children and teenagers in the household, and type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural)
