Principal Investigator(s): ABC News; The Washington Post


This survey centers on Vice President Dan Quayle. Respondents were asked if they approved of the way Quayle was handling his job as vice president, if they thought Quayle was qualified to be vice president and would be qualified to take over as president if something were to happen to George Bush, if Bush should keep Quayle on the ticket for re-election in 1992, and if the news media had been fair to Quayle. In addition, respondents also were questioned regarding Bush's irregular heartbeat episode and general health status. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, sex, and state/region of residence.
