  • Abstract

    This 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 and his handling of the presidency, foreign policy, the economy, and the situation between Israel and the Palestinians, as well as their views on the single most important problem for the president and Congress to address in the coming year. Respondents also expressed their views on Congress and the federal government, big business influence on George W. Bush, the seriousness of corporate accounting scandals for the nation's economy, and big business contribution to communities and the environment. Respondents gave their opinions of John Ashcroft and Dick Cheney, as well as their views on reports about companies accused of fraudulent accounting practices, George W. Bush's proposals for reforming corporate accounting practices, the frequency of white-collar crime in American business, insider trading in the stock market, George W. Bush's past business dealings with Harken Energy, and Dick Cheney's past business dealings as the chief executive of Halliburton Company. Respondents also answered a set of questions regarding the establishment of a Palestinian homeland in the West Bank and Gaza, the Republican party, the Democratic party, and the health care system in the United States. Respondents were asked to express their opinions about the ability of the United States government to capture Osama Bin Laden and likelihood of another terrorist attack in the United States. In addition, those queried were asked a series of questions regarding their personal investments. Background information includes respondents' political affiliation, marital status, number of household members, religion, education, age, race, income, and gender.
