Version V1

In this survey respondents were asked their opinions of the presidential candidates prior to the Iowa caucuses on February 8. Caucus participants were asked their opinions of the candidates, whom they wanted their party to nominate, whether they agreed with the candidates on the issues, if candidates had leadership qualities or enough experience to be president, if candidates cared about their needs, and what their contact with candidates' campaigns had been. Respondents also were asked which party had a better group of candidates, whether the Democratic party should retain its liberal principles or modify them, and whether the Republican party should retain its conservative principles. Other topics included previous caucus participation and voting, short range nuclear missiles, Gary Hart, campaign debts, the state and national economies, federal military spending, and aid to the Nicaraguan contras. Background information includes party identification, religious preference and importance, education, age, race, farm employment, and income.
