Summary
This study was conducted in two waves, before and after the 1944 presidential election. Of the 2,564 respondents surveyed in the first wave, 2,030 were reinterviewed after the election. Respondents were queried about their party identification, opinions on postwar issues, voting intentions and expectations about the outcome of the election, sources of political information, the importance they attached to the election, and who they believed to be candidates Franklin Roosevelt's and Thomas Dewey's supporters. In addition, open-ended questions tapped areas the respondents considered to be major problems, campaign issues that influenced their vote, party differences, evaluations of major presidential candidates, and the candidates' ability to deal with specified problems. Post-election questions (V79-V123) elicited the respondents' opinions on post-war political and economic issues, the electoral campaign, and Roosevelt's reelection. Variables also probed the respondents' actual voting behavior and the reasons for their choice. Demographic data include sex, race, age group, and level of education, as well as ethnic and religious affiliations
