Description
  • Abstract

    This survey was conducted prior to the New York primary held on April 19, 1988. Respondents were asked if they were registered to vote, their party designation, if they intended to vote in the Democratic or Republican presidential primary, for whom they would vote if the primary were held that day, toward which candidate they were leaning, the strength of their support, and any candidates they definitely would not vote for. Additional questions probed for the respondent's opinions on the commercials of several candidates and the most important issue in the presidential campaign. Background information on respondents includes education, age, religion, race, sex, income, voting history, and political orientation.
