  • Abstract

    This survey probed for respondents' opinions of the Democratic and Republican candidates prior to the New Hampshire presidential primary on February 16. Respondents were asked who they wanted their party to nominate, if they agreed with candidates on the issues, which candidate would have the best chance of winning the presidential election, if they had been contacted by any of the candidates or seen advertisements, and which candidate did best in the New Hampshire debates. Republicans were asked if candidates were liberal, moderate, or conservative, and if George Bush was withholding information about the Iran-Contra affair. Democrats were asked if they wanted the Democrats to nominate someone who was not running, if Gary Hart knew about illegal contributions to his campaign, and what their opinion was of Dick Gephardt's import tax proposals. All respondents were asked about their attention to the campaign, previous voting behavior, and how they felt about the New Hampshire primary taking place after the Iowa caucuses. Other topics included the federal budget deficit, short-range nuclear missiles, the nuclear power plant at Seabrook, the state and national economies, and whether respondents wanted a president who would continue the policies of Ronald Reagan. Background information on individuals includes party affiliation, age, income, religious preference, education, and race.
