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. Specific topics addressed in this poll included the amount of violence on television, the Whitewater hearing, and the situation in Rwanda. Respondents were asked to give their opinions on violence on television and in the movies and whether the federal government should regulate the violence. Additional questions queried respondents on their opinions of the Whitewater real estate deal and whether they believed that, in the long run, the congressional hearings would hurt President Bill Clinton and his administration. Background information on respondents includes voter registration status, household composition, vote choice in the 1992 presidential election, political party, political orientation, education, age, sex, race, religious preference, and family income.
