Version V1

This special topic poll, conducted on June 2, 1997--the day that a jury convicted Timothy McVeigh of planning and planting the bomb that killed 168 people in Oklahoma City in 1995--sought respondents' views on the verdict and on terrorist attacks in the United States. Respondents were asked whether they agreed with the verdict, whether McVeigh should receive the death penalty, and whether they believed that the government had caught everyone responsible. A series of questions addressed concern over terrorist attacks in the United States, including whether the respondent believed that he/she or anyone they knew was a potential victim of terrorism. Background information on respondents includes sex.
