ABC News conducted surveys of voters as they exited the polling places on November 6, 1984. Repondents were asked about their presidential choice and reasons why they voted the way they did. Voters were also asked why they chose not to vote for the other candidate. The surveys included items concerning party identification, ethnic background, liberal/ conservative leaning and demographic information.
