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, foreign policy, and the economy. In addition, respondents were asked whether they approved of actions taken against Iraq, whether President Bush did everything to avoid war with Iraq, and whether the United States or any country is justified in attacking another country without first being attacked. Respondents' opinions were elicited on various aspects of the war in Iraq: whether the removal of Saddam Hussein from power was worth the potential loss of life, whether the United States was making a mistake getting involved, level of concern over and the likelihood of a possible terrorist attack, whether the United States and local governments were prepared for another terrorist attack, whether the war would be fairly quick and successful or long and costly, potential loss of life, and when the respondent became convinced the United States would take military action. Respondents were also asked whether the Bush administration had clearly explained the cost of the war, the duration, and potential loss of life, whether they believed the Bush administration had a clear plan for rebuilding Iraq, whether the respondent felt proud about the actions of the United States, and whether the military was holding back information. A number of questions were posed regarding the Republican and Democratic parties: which of the two would ensure a strong economy, build a strong military defense, and make the right decisions regarding terrorism. Respondents were asked whether Democratic presidential candidates should speak out against the war, whether Americans who opposed the war should hold protest marches or rallies, and whether presidential candidates should continue to campaign while the war continued. Respondents were asked whether the war bothered them, how much the war affected their news viewing, and what their impressions were of the war in Iraq and in Afghanistan. Finally, respondents were asked whether they or a family member served in the military. A variety of demographic information was elicited, including political party affiliation, political view (liberal, moderate, or conservative), marital status, religion, education, age, Hispanic descent, race, income, and additional phone lines
