This special topic poll sought respondents' views on President Bill Clinton's foreign policy goals in Bosnia, specifically on the recent decision to send 20,000 United States troops to Bosnia as part of the global peace-keeping mission, as well as several additional topics. Those queried were asked for their opinions on the use of swear and curse words by adults, teenagers, middle school children, and grade school children, and reasons for using such language. They were also asked to rate the ethics and honesty of politicians, average citizens, doctor, lawyers, and members of Congress. Additional topics covered respondents' experience with lawyers, the United States system of civil laws and lawsuits, the power of prayer for healing, and beliefs regarding whether God does heal. Demographic variables include sex, political party, voter registration, religion, and use of lawyers.
