Description
  • Abstract

    This poll is part of a 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 on President George W. Bush's handling of foreign and domestic issues such as the economy, the war against terrorism, possible military action against Iraq, the budget, taxes, and North Korea. Respondents were also asked to give their opinions on how the policies of the United Nations would affect military action in Iraq, diplomacy with North Korea, the overall view of the state of the economy, the respondent's personal financial health, the present and future legality of abortion, interaction within communities of varying levels of diversity, affirmative action policies, capital punishment, state and federal budget problems, investments, race relations and discrimination, and preferences for candidates in the 2004 presidential primaries. Background information on respondents includes political orientation, age, sex, education, religion, military service, community demographics, and household income.
