Summary
This poll 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 George W. Bush and his handling of the presidency, his ability to handle a crisis, and whether he had good judgment. Respondents were also asked to give their views on the September 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, DC. Questions focused on the condition of the nation's economy, federal spending on intelligence agencies, whether the United States should take military action in the wake of the terrorist attacks, and what the scope of any action should be, including use of ground troops, cruise missiles, and assassination attempts. Respondents were also asked about the likelihood that the terrorists would be caught, the possibility of another attack on the United States, and who was to blame for the attacks. Other questions focused on whether the United States should return to business as usual, whether the government had done enough to make the country more secure, and how willing respondents were to make sacrifices of time when flying. Respondents were asked additional questions regarding air travel in the United States and whether they might, in the wake of the terrorist attacks, surrender certain personal freedoms, such as having the government monitor the telephone calls and e-mail of ordinary Americans. Questions were also posed regarding immigration and the treatment of Arab Americans. Other topics included respondents' personal willingness to fly in an airplane, what the government should do to help the airline industry, personal opinions of New York City, opinions of the United States economy, whether the United States was in a recession, spending habits since the terrorist attacks, personal investments, and the effect the terrorist attacks had on personal investment. Background information on respondents includes age, gender, political party affiliation, military service, marital status, education, race, and income
