Summary
These data were collected through interviews conducted with voters in 42 states as they left their polling places on Election Day, November 2, 1998. Part 1, National Data, contains data collected from a national sample. National sample respondents were asked a series of questions about their electoral choices, the issues surrounding the elections, and the factors that influenced their decisions. Questions focused on the scandal involving President Bill Clinton and former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, the fate of Clinton's term, the state and future of the nation's economy, the direction of the country, and the upcoming 2000 presidential election. Background information on national respondents includes age, race, sex, Hispanic descent, age of children in household, marital status, political party, political orientation, employment status, education, religion, and family income. Parts 2-43 contain data collected from the individual state surveys. Interviews were conducted in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. In addition, telephone surveys of absentee/early voters were conducted in California, Oregon, and Washington. Respondents were asked for their opinions on Clinton and the United States Congress, as well as for their vote choices in the relevant gubernatorial, senatorial, and congressional elections. Those queried were also asked whether they supported state-specific proposals, such as a state lottery to fund education in Alabama, legalized physician-assisted suicide in Michigan, and legalized use of marijuana for medical purposes in Nevada. Background information on individual state respondents includes age, race, sex, education, political party, political orientation, and family income
