Principal Investigator(s): CBS News; The New York Times


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, the candidates, and the way George W. Bush was handling certain issues including the economy, the war in Iraq, and terrorism. Respondents were also asked their opinions of George W. Bush and John Kerry, and which candidate they favored in the election. The survey also included questions about various issues of the campaign such as abortion, affirmative action, anti-terrorism efforts, and same-sex marriage. Background information on respondents includes voter registration status, party identification, voting record in the 2000 and 2002 elections, marital status, sex, religious preference, education record, age, ethnicity, and income.
