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 about the economy and about the responsibility of the United States in the international arena in general and in Bosnia in particular. Opinions were also solicited on Hillary Clinton and her role as First Lady, the Whitewater real estate deal, and the importance of the news media in forming public opinion. The topic of religion was covered in detail, with particular attention to respondents who identified themselves as Catholic. Catholic respondents were asked whether they had said the rosary, gone to confession, attended a meeting of a Catholic organization, or prayed in private during the preceding 30 days. Further questions concerned whether the Catholic Church was in touch with the needs of Catholics, and if the respondent was in favor of letting Catholic priests get married, allowing women to be ordained as Catholic priests, and having girls assist in altar duties. Other topics covered whether people can be considered "good Catholics" if they get divorced and remarry, practice artificial birth control, or engage in homosexual relations. Additional questions asked Catholic respondents whether they thought that the Church's teaching on premarital sex, the shortage of priests and nuns, and reports of priests sexually abusing children would hurt the Church. Background information on respondents includes voter registration status, household composition, vote choice in the 1992 presidential election, political party, political orientation, education, age, sex, race, religious preference, and family income
