CBS Monthly News Poll, July 2004 (ICPSR 4160)

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 and the candidates, and the way George W. Bush was handling certain issues, including the economy, the war in Iraq, and terrorism. The survey also asked questions about the Democratic National Convention. In addition, respondents were asked to evaluate their weight and how often they ate at fast food restaurants. 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, income, and willingness for callback.
