Version V1

In this survey respondents were asked to rate Ronald Reagan's performance as president. Their opinions were sought on whether his age mattered, whether he was honest and doing all that he could to bring out the facts surrounding the Iran affair, whether he was in control of his presidency, and whether Reagan himself participated in an attempt to cover up the facts about the Iran-Contra affair. Other questions dealt with the Tower Commission report on the Iran-Contra matter, including differences between the Commission's findings and Reagan's statements. Demographic characteristics of respondents are included.
