Questions in this survey probed for respondents' opinions of the presidential and vice-presidential candidates after the Republican National Convention in August of 1988. Respondents were asked their opinions of George Bush, Michael Dukakis, Dan Quayle, and Lloyd Bentsen. They also were asked how likely they were to vote in the presidential election in November of 1988, how they would vote if the election were held on the day of the survey, whether they would vote that way because they strongly favored their candidates or disliked the other candidates, and who they thought would win the November elections. Respondents also were queried about their previous voting behavior, how much attention they paid to the Republican National Convention and to the Presidential campaign, and Ronald Reagan's job performance. Respondents were asked about Dukakis' and Bush's leadership abilities, their sensitivity to the feelings of minorities, and about how they would handle taxes and international crises. Respondents rated George Bush's handling of the selection of his running mate, and gave their opinions about Dan Quayle's motives and methods when he joined the National Guard during the Vietnam War. Background information on individuals includes party affiliation, age, income, religious preference, armed forces service, labor union membership, ethnicity, and education.
