This special-topic poll is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other politcal and social issues. This data collection probes respondents' opinions of President Ronald Reagan, Vice President George Bush, and Secretary of State Alexander Haig. Respondents were also asked about their support of handgun control in the wake of the attempted assassination of President Reagan. Respondents' race, education level, and age were also recorded.
