AbstractThis poll, conducted February 27, 2001, is part of a continuing series of 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 George W. Bush and his handling of the presidency, following Bush's first address to Congress earlier in the evening. Views were sought on the proposals outlined by Bush during the address, including income tax cuts, increased education spending, increased funding for Social Security and Medicare, and using the federal budget surplus to reduce the national debt. Respondents were queried as to whether they thought Bush or other individuals were in charge of the administration, whether Democrats would work with the administration, and whether the priorities of the Bush administration were shared by the American people. Respondents were also asked whether they supported Bush's proposed $1.6 trillion tax cut and whether it would be possible to preserve social programs after such tax a cut. Background information on respondents includes age, gender, political party, marital status, education, religion, children in household, race, Hispanic descent, and household income.
