ABC News United States in Bosnia Poll, November 1995 (ICPSR 6686)

Principal Investigator(s): ABC News


This special topic poll sought respondents' views on United States involvement in the situation in Bosnia. Those queried were asked for their opinions on President Bill Clinton's handling of the situation, whether he had a clear policy regarding Bosnia, whether Bosnia was a vital interest to the United States, and how they felt about the agreement to send 20,000 United States troops to Bosnia as part of the peace-keeping mission. Respondents were also asked to compare the unrest in Bosnia with the situation surrounding the Vietnam War, to describe the problems in Bosnia as either a local dispute or a European problem, and to indicate whether the United States should take the lead in achieving peace. Demographic variables include sex and political party.
