  • Abstract

    Conducted shortly before the National Democratic Convention of 1988, this survey examines attitudes of the delegates to the convention on a variety of national issues. Major areas of investigation include delegates' views on federal spending issues, taxes, government attention to various social groups and government responsibilities, the role of Jesse Jackson, candidate Dukakis's choice of running mate, the death penalty, and United States/Soviet relations. Profiles of the delegates include their participation in Democratic party affairs, elective offices they have held or currently hold, 1984 presidential preference, household financial situation, age, religion, labor union membership, marital status, occupation, education, race, and income.
