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. Questions were posed regarding respondents' vote intentions for the 1992 presidential election, their opinions of the 1992 presidential candidates, and the likelihood of their voting in the 1992 presidential election. Items pertaining to George Bush and Bill Clinton focused on their moral values and their ability to deal with problems. Additional questions concerned respondents' opinions of Bill Clinton, Dan Quayle, and Al Gore. Respondents were also asked to give their approval rating of George Bush with respect to his handling of the presidency, foreign policy, and the economy. Background information on respondents includes sex, age, race, education, religious preference, family income, political orientation, and party preference.

Scope of Study
Date of Collection:
Universe: Adult population of the United States aged 18 and over having telephones at home.
Data Types: survey data
Data Collection Notes:
A weight variable has been included and must be used for any analysis.
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]).
Extent of Processing: ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:
- Created variable labels and/or value labels.
