Summary
This poll, fielded May 18-23, 2007, is a 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. An oversample of African Americans was conducted for this poll. Respondents were asked whether they approved of the way George W. Bush was handling the presidency and issues such as immigration and foreign policy. Views were sought on Vice President Dick Cheney, the United States Congress, the most important problem facing the country, and the condition of the national economy. Those who were registered to vote were asked how closely they were following the 2008 presidential campaign, whether they were more likely to vote in a Democratic or Republican primary, for whom they would vote, their opinion of the nominees from each party, and which party they trusted to handle foreign policy and immigration issues. A series of questions addressed immigration policy in the United States, the effect of legal and illegal immigration on the economy, society, crime, and terrorism, whether immigration should be kept at current levels, and respondents' opinions of proposed solutions for dealing with illegal immigration. Additional topics addressed the war in Iraq, abortion, baseball star Barry Bonds, and steroid use in professional sports. Information was also collected on whether respondents were born in the United States, whether they had been raised in a non-English speaking household, and whether they had regular contact with anyone who was a legal or illegal immigrant to the United States. Demographic information includes sex, age, race, education level, marital status, United States citizenship status, household income, religious preference, frequency of religious attendance, military service, political party affiliation, political philosophy, voter registration status and participation history, type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural), the presence of children under 18 and household members between the ages of 18 and 24, and whether respondents had children attending a four-year college
