Version V1

This survey focuses on issues related to the Iraqi rebels who attempted to overthrow Saddam Hussein. Respondents were asked if they approved of the way George Bush was handling the situation, whether the United States should have encouraged the rebels and tried to help them, and whether they favored certain actions the United States could take to help the rebels in Iraq. In addition, respondents were asked if a large number of United States soldiers should remain in the Persian Gulf to help maintain peace and if the United States was heading for the same kind of involvement in the Persian Gulf that it had in the Vietnam War. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, vote choice for the House of Representatives election in November 1992, age, sex, and state/region of residence.
