Description
  • Abstract

    This poll is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicits public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. This survey, fielded March 20, 2003, is a call-back of the March 7-9, 2003 cohort (CBS News Monthly Poll #3, March 2003 [ICPSR 3756]), and was conducted to asses respondent approval ratings of President George W. Bush and his handling of the situation with Iraq. A series of questions addressed United States' military action in Iraq. Those queried were asked whether they approved or disapproved of the military action, and whether the United States should accommodate the wishes of allies and the United Nations. Respondents were asked if they had confidence in President Bush to handle the situation with Iraq, what they thought were the motivations for the attack on Iraq, to what degree they felt that President Bush was attacking Iraq for his own personal reasons, whether Iraq posed a real threat to the United States, and when the United States should take action against Iraq. Questions also sought respondents' views on whether or not a war in Iraq would increase terrorism and what effects (positive or negative) a war in Iraq might have on the United States' economy. No demographic data were gathered.

A variation of random-digit dialing using primary sampling units (PSUs) was employed, consisting of blocks of 100 telephone numbers identical through the eighth digit and stratified by geographic region, area code, and size of place.
