Other topics addressed the 2004 presidential election and President Bush's handling of the presidency, foreign affairs, and the economy. Background variables include sex, age, ethnicity, marital status, household income, education, number of telephone lines in household, religion, religiosity, political affiliation, political orientation, and voter participation and registration history.
