Specific topics covered in this survey include how things were going in the United States on a scale of 1 to 10, the most important problem facing the country and which political party could best handle it, foreign policy, the national economy and recession, state economies, the job done by Congress in general and the respondent's representative in particular, the federal budget deficit and the deficit reduction plan, state election campaigns, and satisfaction with choices in state elections. Respondents also were asked about their voter registration status, party preference in the 1990 election for the United States House of Representatives, likelihood of voting in the 1990 elections for Congress, George Bush as a factor in voting for Congress, helpfulness of television commercials in choosing who to vote for for Congress, whether the respondent voted for Bush or Dukakis in 1988 or chose not to vote/was prevented from voting, whether the respondent voted in the 1986 elections for United States Congress or chose not to vote/was prevented from voting, and the most recent election in which the respondent voted.
