Principal Investigator(s):


This survey explores various political and financial issues. Respondents were asked if they had a favorable or unfavorable opinion of Geraldine Ferraro and why, how they rated her as a possible United States Senate candidate in 1986 as compared to several other possible candidates, whether they approved of her campaign for vice president, and whether either her husband's legal problems or the Pepsi-Cola commercial she made would influence the likelihood of their voting for her in the future. Other topics covered included Mario Cuomo's performance as governor, Reagan's tax reform proposal, the respondent's own banking activities, and the possible personal and nation-wide impact of problems that banks in Ohio and Maryland were experiencing.
