This special topic poll fielded September 2, 2005, was undertaken to assess respondents' opinions on Hurricane Katrina and the governmental response. Respondents were asked whether or not they approved of President Bush's and the federal government's response to the aftermath of the hurricane and whether or not they felt the state, local, and national governments were adequately prepared for this or other potential disasters. Respondents were also queried on their opinion on the deployment of National Guard troops, and if the city should be rebuilt on the same location. The survey also included questions on gas prices and whether or not oil companies were taking advantage of the situation from the hurricane. Demographic information included political affiliation, age, race, and sex.
