This survey is part of an ongoing data collection effort by CBS News and The New York Times. Interviews were conducted with respondents in 23 states as they left their polling places on election day, November 4, 1986. Respondents were asked to answer a series of questions about their vote choices in the senate and gubernatorial races. Additionally, they were asked about the issues and factors that most influenced those votes. Questions regarding how the respondent voted for the various referenda and propositions on the ballot in his or her state were asked as well. Other items included the respondent's opinion on the condition of the United States economy, who the Democrats and the Republicans should nominate for president in 1988, and the respondent's vote choice for president in 1984. Demographic information was also collected.
