Description
  • Abstract

    This survey is part of an ongoing data collection effort by CBS News. Interviews were conducted with voters in 24 states as they left their polling places on election day, November 8, 1988. Respondents were asked a series of questions about their vote choices in the presidential, senate, and gubernatorial races, the issues and factors that most influenced those votes, and whether their vote for president was influenced by Reagan's policies. Questions regarding the various referenda and propositions on the ballot and other issues specific to the respondent's state also were asked. Additional items included respondents' opinions on the condition of the United States economy, their presidential vote choice in 1984, when they made their presidential choice in the current election, and the strength of that choice. Demographic information collected includes sex, race, age, employment status, religion, education, political party identification, and family income.
