This special topic poll, conducted June 23-26, 2005, 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 on the effectiveness of United States President George W. Bush in relation to the conflict in Iraq. Questions addressed such issues as whether deploying the United States military in Iraq was worth the human and economic costs, the effect military action in Iraq had on relations with countries like France or Germany that disagreed with the United States on military action in Iraq, the effect military action in Iraq had on the stability and peace in the Middle East, and the effect military action in Iraq had on United States security domestically and internationally. Respondents were asked to give their opinions of the Bush administration's actions and statements prior to military action in Iraq, of the effect of Iraqi elections on the stability of Iraq, whether military action in Iraq was part of the broader "war on terror," when or if the United States military would withdraw or reduce troop size in Iraq, and the effect on world opinion and events if the United States military were to be successful in establishing and maintaining a democratic government in Iraq. Additional questions sought opinions of the death penalty and other punishments for convicted murderers and whether respondents would advise youth to join the United States military. Background information includes age, sex, education, household income, political ideology, political party affiliation, race, religious affiliation, whether that religion was protestant, and whether the respondent considers herself or himself "born-again."

The data contain a weight variable (WEIGHT) that should be used in analyzing the data. The data were weighted using demographic information from the Census to adjust for sampling and nonsampling deviations from population values. Respondents customarily were classified into one of 48 cells based on age, race, sex and education. Weights were assigned so the proportion in each of these 48 cells matched the actual population proportion according to the Census Bureau's most recent Current Population Survey.
