This survey queried residents of New York State. Respondents were asked to describe their feelings about the way government in New York State worked, to indicate for whom they would vote in a 1992 United States Senate election involving Republican Alfonse D'Amato and various Democratic candidates including Geraldine Ferraro, Robert Abrams, Elizabeth Holtzman, and Al Sharpton, and to comment on whether these candidates had the integrity and honesty to serve effectively. Regarding the 1992 presidential election, respondents were asked whether they would vote for George Bush, Bill Clinton, or Ross Perot, whether Perot supporters would vote for Bush or Clinton if Perot chose not to run, whether the three major candidates were qualified to be president, if they would like to see someone else enter the race, and whether they would be better off financially under Bush, Clinton, or Perot. Respondents also indicated whether they liked Perot more or less the more they heard about him and, if they had heard of Clinton's plan to deal with the nation's economy, whether they approved of it. Additional questions dealt with Clinton's selection of a vice-presidential running mate from a potential field including Bill Bradley, Mario Cuomo, and Jesse Jackson, and Clinton's criticism of rap singer Sister Souljah. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, voter registration status, age, Hispanic origin, household income, and sex.
