CBS News Primary Election Exit Polls, 1984 (ICPSR 8425)
Principal Investigator(s): CBS News
This data collection is part of a continuing series of exit polls. CBS News interviewed voters in 1984 as they left the polls on primary election day in Vermont, Connecticut, Indiana, Maryland, Nebraska, Oregon, Tennessee, and the District of Columbia. Voters were asked about their choice of candidate in the presidential primary and to describe candidate characteristics and issues that influenced their selection. Respondents were also asked about their political party preference and their opinions on the United States' response to the Communist threat in Central America. Demographic information for each respondent includes sex, age, race, and income. The collection consists of one data file per state.
