  • Abstract

    The summit meeting negotiations between Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev were the subject of this survey. Respondents' opinions were sought on the United States-Soviet Union arms agreement, Reagan's handling of the summit, the degree to which Gorbachev can be trusted, and the overall state of relations between the two countries. Those respondents who had seen or heard any of Reagan's broadcast speech of December 10, 1987 also were asked if the speech made them more confident of Reagan's ability to negotiate with the Soviets. Demographic characteristics of respondents are included.
