Respondents were asked if they registered to vote, if they planned to vote in the upcoming state general election, if they were following the governor's race closely, if they voted in the state general election in 1985, and whom they would like to see win the 1989 election. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, 1985 gubernatorial vote choice, education, age, race, sex, and income.
