This poll, fielded August 12-14, 1996, is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. Respondents were asked to give their opinions of President Bill Clinton, Vice President Al Gore, Republican presidential candidate Bob Dole, and Dole's newly-announced running mate, Jack Kemp. Those queried were also asked for their opinions about the 1996 presidential and congressional elections, and the commitment of the Democratic and Republican parties to the creation of a strong economy, a fair tax system, the achievement of the "American dream," and gender-specific needs. Additional questions focused specifically on beliefs about the personal and political goals of Bob Dole, and the upcoming Republican convention. Background information on respondents includes age, race, sex, political party, political orientation, education, and family income.
