This survey was conducted on the evening of November 13, 1986, after President Reagan's press conference. Reagan spoke about United States arms shipments to Iran. Respondents were asked about their knowledge of the situation and their evaluation of Reagan's policy towards Iran. They were asked if they watched the press conference and if so, their opinion of what Reagan said was illicited. Political affiliation and sex were also recorded.
