  • Abstract

    This poll, conducted April 19-22, 2001, 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 to give their opinions of President George W. Bush and his handling of the presidency, the economy, international affairs, environmental issues, and education. They also expressed their views on the way Vice President Dick Cheney and the United States Congress were handling their jobs. The poll queried respondents about Bush's experience and ability to be a president, and whether President Bush cared more about ordinary people or large corporations, as well as their views on the most important task for President Bush and Congress. Respondents were also asked about the economic situation in the country, whether the United States was heading into an energy crisis, whether federal funding should be given to religious groups, what the priorities for surplus money in the federal budget should be, and President Bush's budget plan. Respondents expressed their views on the way President Bush was handling relations with China, whether the United States should have free trade with China, China's bid to host the Olympic Games, and the sale of advanced weapons to Taiwan. Respondents' opinions were also elicited about a plan in which people could invest some of their Social Security contributions in the stock market. Respondents were also asked about their participation in the last presidential election on November 7, 2000, and whom they voted for. Background information on respondents includes age, gender, education, race, religion, party affiliation, political orientation, household income, voter registration, and type of residential area.
