ABC News Gary Hart Poll, December 1987 (ICPSR 8926)
Gary Hart's decision to re-enter the 1988 presidential race was the central focus of this survey. Respondents' opinions were sought on Hart's chances of winning the Democratic nomination, how seriously he believed he could win, whether his action would hurt the Democrats' chances of winning in 1988, and the importance of a candidate's private morals compared with his or her public stands on the issues. Respondents' opinions of George Bush, Jesse Jackson, Michael Dukakis, and other public figures also were recorded. Demographic characteristics of respondents are included.
