  • 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 were asked for their opinions of President Bill Clinton and his handling of the presidency, foreign policy, and the economy, as well as their opinions of Vice President Al Gore, Hillary Clinton, Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, and Senator Fred Thompson. Those queried were also asked to comment on the investigations and hearings surrounding 1996 Democratic fundraising activities and the future of campaign finance reform. Family issues, including spousal communication, the fears of teenagers, and parental responsibility regarding teenage drinking, were addressed. Other topics covered the role of vitamins in maintaining good health, the trial of British nanny Louise Woodward, the future of the penny, and the future of the one-dollar coin. Background information on respondents includes age of children in household, political party, political orientation, religion, education, age, race, ethnicity, family income, and marital status.
