AbstractThis poll 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, his handling of the presidency, the campaign against terrorism, and the economy. The remainder of the questions focused on events related to the September 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and the ensuing war in Afghanistan. Respondents were queried on how they felt about military attacks on Afghanistan, whether they approved of the actions, whether the war was going well, what effect it would have on terrorism, and the likelihood that it would develop into a larger war. Osama bin Laden, the terrorist ringleader in Afghanistan, was the next topic, as respondents were asked whether they felt that his capture would mean a United States victory in Afghanistan, and whether they felt he was currently alive or dead. Respondents' views were sought on the likelihood of another terrorist attack in the United States, the ability of the United States to protect its citizens from future attacks, and the recent anthrax attacks. Respondents were then asked whether and how September 11 had affected their lives, and how they believed it would affect the future, especially in regard to civil liberties. Opinions were also solicited on the state of airline security, respondents' recent flight experiences, and a recent incident involving an Arab-American Secret Service agent who was kept off a flight for security reasons. Background information includes age, gender, race, religion, education, political party, political orientation, marital status, number of children in the household, and income.
