  • Abstract

    This survey centers on David Dinkins, the new mayor of New York City. Respondents were asked what their impressions were of various public figures, what kind of mayor Dinkins would be, if they thought Dinkins would do a better job than Ed Koch, if they approved of Dinkins' choices for city government jobs, and if they thought the Dinkins administration would be able to make substantial progress on problems such as homelessness, drugs, crime, and the educational system. Additionally, respondents were asked questions concerning the city's large budget deficit, Dinkins' honesty, and the investigation of his personal finances by the federal government. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, 1989 mayoral vote choice, age, religion, race, sex, and borough of residence.
