This survey focuses on the 1985 New York City mayoral race and the Roman Catholic church. Respondents were asked who they would like to see win the 1985 race, how they would rate Ed Koch as mayor, and whether they preferred Koch to other mayoral candidates. Respondents also were asked whether they agreed with a series of statements relating to abortion, birth control, homosexuality, and the Roman Catholic church. Items pertaining to the Catholic church included the respondent's opinions on priests being allowed to marry, women being allowed to become priests, priests, bishops and cardinals staying out of politics, a tax credit for parents who send their children to parochial schools, and Bishop John O'Connor's performance as head of the New York Archdiocese. Demographic characteristics also were recorded.
