  • Abstract

    This special topic poll, fielded March 23, 1999, sought respondents' views on United States involvement in the Serbian region of Kosovo. Those queried were asked whether they believed that America's vital interests were at stake in Kosovo, whether the United States should bomb military targets in Serbia if the Serbian government refused to agree to a peace plan for Kosovo, and whether United States involvement in the region was likely to bring peace to the area. Additional questions addressed the possible use of United States ground troops to enforce the peace treaty in Kosovo, whether United States military involvement would put United States soldiers at risk, and how many lives bringing peace to Kosovo was worth. The results of the poll were announced on the ABC television program "Nightline." Background information on respondents includes sex and political party.
