Version V1

This election poll focuses primarily on respondents' perceptions of the candidates in the 1992 presidential election. Those surveyed were asked to rate the chances of their voting in the election, to indicate their vote intentions in the election, to comment on the possibility of changing their minds about a candidate before the election, and to identify any candidates they would definitely not vote for under any circumstances. The survey posed questions regarding the applicability of statements such as "He is a strong leader," and "He can be trusted in a crisis," to George Bush, Bill Clinton, and Ross Perot, and asked respondents to choose the candidate able to do the best job on issues such as the economy, race relations, and family values. In addition, respondents were asked to comment on how they felt the federal government was working, whether they felt things in the United States were going in the right direction, and whether the nation's economy was getting better. Background information on respondents includes voter registration status, party preference, education, age, race and Hispanic origin, and sex.
