For this special topic poll, fielded September 17, 1994, respondents were asked whether they approved of President Bill Clinton's handling of the situation in Haiti, whether it was worth taking the risk imposed by Clinton's threat to invade Haiti unless the military leaders stepped down, whether the Haitian situation was basically settled since the Haitian generals controlling Haiti had agreed to step down from power, and whether respondents approved of United States military forces being sent to Haiti to help keep order in the country while Aristide reassumed his office. Background information includes political orientation and sex.
