Description
  • Abstract

    In this survey respondents were asked their opinions of the Democratic and Republican presidential and vice-presidential candidates and how likely they were to vote in the 1988 presidential election. They were asked how they would vote if the election were held the day of the survey, if their minds were made up, and how strongly they favored the candidates they chose. Other information elicited included how the respondents would vote if they were only voting for president or for vice-president, how they felt about "liberal" public figures, and whether they liked the presidential candidates as persons. Additional topics covered the national economy, respondents' previous voting behavior, if they cared who won, and who they thought would win the election. Background information on individuals includes party affiliation, age, marital status, income, religious preference, employment status, education, race, and union membership.
