This poll, conducted November 2-5, 2000, is part of a continuing series of surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. The survey was conducted to assess respondents' interest in and opinions about the upcoming 2000 presidential election. Those polled were asked whether they approved of the Clinton presidency and whether they had a favorable impression of President Clinton. They were also asked if they had voted for Senator Bob Dole, President Clinton, or Ross Perot in the 1996 presidential election. Respondents were queried about the amount of attention they were paying to the 2000 presidential campaign, if they intended to vote in that election, if the 2000 presidential election were held that day, whether they would vote for Vice President Al Gore, Texas Governor George W. Bush, conservative commentator Pat Buchanan, or consumer advocate Ralph Nader, and which candidate they expected would win. Those polled were asked if they had a favorable impression of Bush and Gore and which candidate they thought was better prepared for the presidency. Respondents were asked whether Bush or Gore would be better able to deal with an international crisis, sustain the current economy, preserve Social Security, and improve education, and which of them would appoint Supreme Court justices who would vote to keep abortion legal. Additional questions included whether respondents belonged to labor unions, whether they were aware of Bush's driving under the influence (DUI) arrest in 1976, and if that arrest changed the way they would vote in the 2000 presidential election. Background information on respondents includes age, sex, political party, political orientation, voter registration and voting participation history, religion, marital status, children in household, education, race, Hispanic descent, years in community, and household income.

A variation of random-digit dialing using primary sampling units (PSUs) was employed, consisting of blocks of 100 telephone numbers identical through the eighth digit and stratified by geographic region, area code, and size of place. Within households, respondents were selected using a method developed by Leslie Kish and modified by Charles Backstrom and Gerald Hursh (see Backstrom and Hursh, SURVEY RESEARCH. Evanston, IL: Northwestern University Press, 1963).
