Version V1

This special topic poll sought respondents' views on the 1996 presidential election, specifically the possible candidacy of retired General Colin Powell. Given President Bill Clinton, Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole, and Colin Powell as candidates, those queried were asked for whom they would vote. Respondents were also asked to give their opinions on Colin Powell's support of legal abortion, restrictions on gun sales, the death penalty, and having a moment of silent prayer in public schools. Demographic variables include sex, age, race, education, political party, political orientation, family income, and voter registration and participation history.
