Principal Investigator(s): WLS-TV; ABC News
WLS-TV and ABC News cooperated in surveying Chicago voters as they left the polls on election day, April 7, 1987. Voters were asked for whom they had voted for mayor and why and to rate the candidates and their performance during the campaign. Other questions focused on issues important to Chicago's future, race relations, street crime, and the Chicago school board. Demographic characteristics and political orientation also are included.
