  • Abstract

    This survey was conducted prior to the South Carolina Republican primary held on March 5, 1988. Respondents were asked if they were registered to vote, if they intended to vote in the Republican primary or the Democratic primary on March 12, for whom they would vote if the primary were held that day, toward which candidate they were leaning, the strength of their support, reasons for their choice, and any candidates they definitely would not vote for. Additional questions focused on the respondent's religious orientation and practice. Background information on respondents includes education, age, race, sex, income, voting history, and political orientation.
