Version V1

This special topic poll monitored public opinion on President Bill Clinton's televised speech on the economy, delivered February 15, 1993. Respondents rated their approval of Clinton's speech, and indicated whether they had a good idea of where Clinton planned to lead the nation in the next four years, whether Clinton was headed in the right direction in his plans for dealing with the economy, and whether they agreed that Americans were going to have to make some financial sacrifices for the long-term good of the nation's economy. Those surveyed were also asked if they thought most Americans were ready to make such sacrifices, and if they personally would be willing to accept a $100-a-year increase in their taxes to help reduce the federal budget deficit. Background information on respondents includes political party, household income, and sex.
