  • Abstract

    This data collection is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that evaluates the Reagan presidency and solicits opinions on a variety of political and social issues. Topics covered include the national economy, how much attention the United States pays to what other countries think, foreign imports and Japanese competition, the breakdown of moral standards in the country over the last 20 years, and the respondent's vote preference in the 1984 presidential election. In addition, respondents were queried about their views on the candidates for the 1988 presidential election. Questions asked of respondents include whether they had a favorable or unfavorable opinion of the various presidential candidates, whom their party should nominate for president, which candidate had the best chance of winning the November election, and which candidate cared most about the needs of people like the respondent. Background information on individuals includes party affiliation, age, union membership, income, sex, religious preference, education, and race.
