This special topic poll, conducted October 9, 1996, is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of political and social issues. Opinions were solicited before and after the vice-presidential debate held October 10, 1996. Prior to the debate, registered voters were asked about the chances that they would vote in the upcoming presidential election, for whom they would vote if the election were being held that day, and whether they planned to watch the vice-presidential debate. A subset of respondents agreed to participate in a follow-up poll conducted immediately after the debate between vice-presidential candidates Al Gore and Jack Kemp. These respondents were asked whether they had watched any of the debate, who they believed won the debate, and for whom they would vote in the upcoming presidential election if the election were held that day. Demographic variables include sex, race, and political party affiliation.

(1) To protect respondent confidentiality, respondent names were removed from the public use data file. Otherwise, the data has not been processed by ICPSR staff, and is being released in essentially the same form as it was received. (2) Although the codebook contains data collection instruments for the VP Debate poll and the Follow-up poll, the data file received by ICPSR appears to correspond only to the Follow-up poll.

Households were selected by random-digit dialing. Within households, the respondent selected was the adult living in the household who last had a birthday and who was home at the time of the interview.

Registered voters aged 18 and over living in households with telephones in the contiguous 48 United States.
