  • Abstract

    This survey was conducted after the summit meeting between Reagan and Gorbachev in Iceland. Respondents were asked to evaluate Reagan's handling of the summit meeting, arms control, and relations with the Soviet Union. They were also asked their opinion of Gorbachev and whether or not the summit would affect which party they would vote for in the upcoming congressional election. In addition, political affiliation, race, and sex were recorded.
