Description
  • Abstract

    This special topic poll, fielded April 8, 1999, sought respondents' views on the current situation in Kosovo. Those queried were asked for their opinions on President Bill Clinton's handling of the situation, whether America's vital interests were at stake, and how they viewed the air strikes currently being waged against Serbia by the United States and its European allies. Respondents were asked whether they would support the use of ground troops to end the conflict, how much time they believed should lapse before ground troops were sent, whether the United States was going to get into a ground war in Kosovo, and the impact of the potential loss of American lives on public opinion. Additional questions covered the success to date of the attacks, whether the respondent possessed a good understanding of the situation, why the United States was involved, and who was to blame for the current refugee situation. The results of the poll were announced on the ABC television program "Nightline." Background information on respondents includes sex and political party.
