This poll is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. Respondents were queried regarding their vote intentions for the 1992 presidential election, their opinions of the 1992 presidential candidates and their running mates, and the likelihood of their voting in the 1992 presidential election. Questions pertaining to the presidential candidates focused on their ability to care about the needs and problems of people and bring about the kind of change the country needs, the likelihood that they would raise taxes, whether they could be trusted to deal with all the problems a president faces, allegations brought against Bill Clinton concerning his draft status, and allegations regarding the Bush Administration's dealings with Iraq before the Persian Gulf War. The survey also dealt with topics such as the responsibilities of the federal government to industry, to the poor, and to the military, the federal budget deficit, the environment, the three presidential debates, abortion, and the national economy. In addition, respondents gave their approval ratings of George Bush with respect to his handling of the presidency, foreign affairs, and the economy, and their opinions of campaign commercials for the three presidential candidates. Background information on the respondents includes sex, age, race, education, religious preference, family income, political orientation, party preference, vote choices in the 1984 and 1988 presidential elections, and voter registration status.
