Version V1

In addition to providing an ongoing evaluation of the Bush presidency, this survey focused on professional football in general and the 1992 Super Bowl in particular. Those surveyed were asked whether they approved of the way George Bush was handling his job as president, whether Bush spent too much time on foreign problems instead of on problems in this country, and whether Bush was starting to spend more time on domestic problems. Regarding professional football, respondents were asked how closely they followed the sport, whether they knew which teams were playing in the 1992 Super Bowl, and who their first, second, and third most favorite National Football League (NFL) teams were. In addition, those surveyed cast their predictions for the team they thought would win the Super Bowl, along with identifying the team they would like to see win. Other football-related questions included whether NFL referees should continue to use instant replay to review plays and calls, whether the situation of few Blacks in management positions with NFL teams reflected discrimination against qualified Blacks, whether the Washington Redskins should change their team name because it was offensive to Native Americans, and whether the respondent knew the names of the teams that won and lost the 1991 Super Bowl. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, education, age, race, income, and sex.
