CBS News/New York Times Election Day Surveys, 1982 (ICPSR 8168)

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

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. Interviews were conducted with respondents as they left their polling places on Election Day, November 7, 1982. Data include respondent's vote for governor, questions specific to the gubernatorial race in each state, and the respondent's rating of Ronald Reagan as president. The 31 datasets consist of 27 state and four regional files. The four regional datasets (Parts 28-31), taken together, make up the national poll. Demographic information on respondents, such as sex, age, race, political affiliation, income, financial state as compared to previous year, and employment status of head of household, were also collected.
