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. Besides the standard questions on President Bill Clinton's performance, a series of questions was included focusing on the theme of taking responsibility, both in terms of people in the United States government and the general population. Respondents were asked if they thought that most people in government positions were willing to take responsibility when things go wrong and, if they say they are taking responsibility, whether they say so to avoid fixing the problem. Additional questions asked whether people today were willing to take responsibility when they had done something wrong, whether it's wrong to make excuses to get out of personal and civic responsibilities, whether the respondent had ever invented excuses to avoid responsibility, and what the best excuse was that they had ever given. Respondents' opinions on crime, criminal trials, and criminal defenses were addressed in detail, and opinions on specific cases, including the Lorena Bobbitt and Eric and Lyle Menendez criminal trials, were solicited. 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
