ABC News Poll, June 2000 (ICPSR 3057)

Principal Investigator(s): ABC News


This poll, fielded June 8-11, 2000, 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 whether they intended to vote in the November 7, 2000, presidential election and for whom they would vote if the election were held that day, given a choice between Vice President Al Gore (Democratic Party), Texas governor George W. Bush (Republican Party), conservative commentator Pat Buchanan (Reform Party), and consumer advocate Ralph Nader (Green Party). Their views were sought on which candidate they trusted to do a better job protecting Social Security and handling the economy. Respondents were also asked which candidate was more likely to exaggerate his accomplishments, had a more appealing personality, was more intelligent, better understood the problems of the American people, was more honest/trustworthy, would be a stronger leader, and could get things done, and whether a real difference existed between the candidates on the issues about which the respondent cared. An additional question sought respondent views on the state of the nation's economy. Background information on respondents includes age, gender, political party, political orientation, voter registration, education, religion, labor union membership, Hispanic origin, and household income.
