Voter Research and Surveys Presidential Primary Exit Polls, 1992 (ICPSR 9852) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

For this data collection, voters were interviewed as they left their polling places after voting in either the Democratic or Republican primary in 29 states. Respondents were asked a series of questions covering presidential choice, most important issues and candidate qualities, feelings about the government, level of commitment to the candidate for whom they voted, political spectrum self-identification, and family financial situation. Other topics covered in individual states included opinions of candidates and approval ratings, party platforms, current news topics such as urban unrest and the state of the economy, and "hot-button" topics unique to each state such as sexual orientation, religious identification, employment issues, law enforcement issues, and environmental positions. Demographic information collected includes sex, race, age, family income range, religion, education, and party identification.

Access Notes

  • This data collection has been deaccessioned; it is no longer distributed by ICPSR. The data are currently available at Voter Research and Surveys Presidential Primary Exit Polls, 1992. Additional information may be available in Data Collection Notes.

    In the states of New Hampshire, New York, and South Dakota, only one instrument was used, and data were then separated on the basis of political party affiliation. There is only one record layout for those states. Thereafter, two different instruments were used in each state for the respective primaries.

Methodology

Sample:   The primary day surveys were conducted at polling places among a sample of voters immediately after they cast their votes. The precincts were a random subsample of those used for estimating election outcome. Sample precincts were selected with probability proportionate to the total vote cast in a recent past election. The sampling frame consisted of all precincts in a state, stratified by party vote and geography. Within precincts, respondents were selected on a systematic random basis. The interviewer had no control over respondent selection.
