Version V1

This poll, fielded June 19-23, 1978, 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 Jimmy Carter and his handling of the presidency and foreign policy, as well as their views of the United States Congress and the Republican and Democratic parties. Those queried were asked if they approve of the way Jimmy Carter is handling United States relations with the Soviet Union and if they favor or oppose the United States and Russian agreement on limiting nuclear weapons. Respondent's views were also sought on issues such as United States' relations with Russia and Cuba, economic progress in the United States, and California's passage of Proposition 13 -- which reduces that states' property taxes by more than half. Background information on respondents includes age, race, sex, education, religion, political party, political orientation, marital status, voter registration and participation history, Hispanic descent, and family income.
