CBS News Monthly Poll, August 2004 (ICPSR 4155)

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

This poll 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 to give their opinions of the 2004 presidential campaign, including whom they likely would vote for and their level of support for that candidate. Questions were also posed regarding candidates' handling of or ability to handle current issues, such as foreign policy, the economy, and the situation in Iraq. Opinions of other national figures -- e.g., Rudolph Giuliani, John McCain, and Arnold Schwarzenegger -- were solicited as well. Additional survey questions queried respondents' perceptions of the state of the economy, the war on terrorism, stem cell research, and government-issued warnings of potential terrorist attacks. Background information includes voter registration status, political party leanings, sex, religious preference, education, age, ethnicity, and income.

Scope of Study

Methodology

Sample:   A variation of random-digit dialing using primary sampling units (PSUs) was employed, consisting of blocks of 100 telephone numbers identical through the eighth digit and stratified by geographic region, area code, and size of place. Within households, respondents were selected using a method developed by Leslie Kish and modified by Charles Backstrom and Gerald Hursh (see Backstrom and Hursh, SURVEY RESEARCH. Evanston, IL: Northwestern University Press, 1963).
