Version V1

This survey is part of an ongoing data collection effort by CBS News and The New York Times. Interviews were conducted with voters as they left the polls on election day, November 8, 1988. Respondents were asked about their vote choices in the presidential, senate, and gubernatorial races, the issues and factors that most influenced those votes, and whether they felt George Bush and Michael Dukakis spent more time explaining their stands on the issues or attacking each other. Other items included respondents' opinions on the condition of the United States economy, their presidential vote choice in 1984, when they made their presidential choice in the current election, and the strength of that choice. Demographic information collected includes sex, race, age, employment status, religion, education, political party identification, and family income.
