  • Abstract

    This survey focused on the United States military action in Panama. Respondents were asked if they approved of the way President George Bush was handling the situation, if they approved of the United States' having sent military forces to overthrow Manuel Noriega, if they felt that the operation had been a success, if the reasons Bush had given for invading Panama were good enough to warrant the action, and if sending military forces into Panama to overthrow Noriega was legal under United States law. Additional questions included whether it bothered the respondent that only a few countries supported the United States' action, if the action could be called successful if Noriega remained free, and if the offer of a million dollar reward for turning in Noriega would work. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, age, sex, and state/region of residence.
