  • Abstract

    This survey was conducted following Ronald Reagan's speech of March 4, 1987. Respondents were asked if they had heard the speech, and if so, whether it made them feel more confident of Reagan's ability to lead the nation, whether it answered most of the questions concerning Reagan's role in the Iran affair, and whether it was an apology to the American people for the way Reagan handled the Iran affair. Other questions probed for respondents' views on the impact of Reagan's health and memory on his ability to carry out his full responsibilities, and his handling of and involvement in the Iran-contra affair in general. Demographic characteristics of respondents are included.
