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 asked to give their opinions of President George W. Bush and his handling of the presidency, the campaign against terrorism, foreign policy, and international crises. They also expressed their opinions on the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Central Intelligence Agency and answered a series of questions on the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Respondents were asked whether information the intelligence agencies might have held before September 11, 2001, could have prevented the terrorist attacks, how much influence and responsibility the President had with regard to terrorism, and Congress's hearings investigating the Bush administration's prior knowledge of the attacks. Those queried also presented their views on what the White House knew prior to September 11, 2001, about possible terrorist attacks and government-issued warnings. Background information includes respondents' political affiliation, marital status, income, religion, education, age, race, and gender.

A variation of random-digit dialing using primary sampling units (PSUs) was employed, consisting of blocks of 100 telephone numbers identical through the eighth digit and stratified by geographic region, area code, and size of place. Within households, respondents were selected using a method developed by Leslie Kish and modified by Charles Backstrom and Gerald Hursh (see Backstrom and Hursh, SURVEY RESEARCH [Evanston, IL: Northwestern University Press, 1963]).
