Description
  • Abstract

    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 answered questions on United States and NATO airstrikes in Bosnia and on their opinions of President Bill Clinton. They also expressed their views regarding the American criminal justice system, including whether the criminal justice system is biased toward any single race and whether the media is similarly biased. The O.J. Simpson trial was another focus of the survey, with questions on the role of the lawyers and Judge Lance Ito in the trial as well as the possibility of conspiracy by the Los Angeles police. Background information on respondents includes voter registration status, political party, political orientation, education, age, sex, race, and family income.
