  • Abstract

    WLS-TV and ABC News cooperated in conducting a survey of voters in the Chicago Democratic primary as they left the polls on February 24, 1987. Voters were asked for whom they voted for mayor, city clerk, and city treasurer, why they supported their mayoral candidate, and how they would vote if the April general election were being held that day. In addition, they were asked to rate Harold Washington's performance as mayor and the quality of life in Chicago, and to list factors that influenced their vote. Demographic characteristics and political orientation also are included.
