ABC News Republican Convention Quick Poll, August 1992 (ICPSR 6014)

Principal Investigator(s): ABC News


This poll, taken during the 1992 Republican National Convention, provides a snapshot of voter sentiment regarding the 1992 presidential race. Respondents were asked to rate their chances of voting in the election, to indicate for whom they would vote if the election were held at the time of the interview and for whom they would vote if Perot had stayed in the race, and to identify either Bush or Clinton as the candidate who would do a better job of dealing with the breakdown of family values and the economy. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, voter registration status, education, age, Hispanic origin, race, and sex.
