This special topic poll, conducted September 9-12, 2004, is part of a continuing series of surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. Residents of Pennsylvania were queried on their opinions regarding the upcoming 2004 presidential election. Questions addressed for whom respondents were going to vote in the 2004 presidential election, whether they considered themselves Democrats or Republicans, what they thought of President George W. Bush's handling of the presidency so far, and for whom they voted in the 2000 presidential election. Respondents were also asked questions comparing Bush and Senator John Kerry, including who would better handle various issues as president in areas such as economy, education, and the campaign against terrorism. Respondents compared Bush and Kerry with respect to traits such as leadership and values. Background information includes age, education, religion, urbanicity, marital status, income, and sex.
