Description
  • Abstract

    This special topic poll, fielded on March 16, 1998, sought respondents' views on the presidency and on former White House volunteer Kathleen Willey's charges that President Bill Clinton forced himself on her sexually at a private meeting in 1993. Respondents were asked to rate Clinton in the areas of honesty, personal moral and ethical standards, ability to understand the people, leadership, and ability to keep the economy strong. Those queried were also asked whether they believed Willey's accusations, and whether the public needed to know the truth about her accusations. A series of questions addressed the recent allegations of sexual misconduct facing Clinton. Topics covered the alleged affair with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, whether Clinton lied under oath when questioned about the scandals, whether he had demonstrated a pattern of sexual misconduct, and the possible punishments that might be imposed upon Clinton if he were found guilty of any wrongdoing. Background information on respondents includes sex and political party.
