  • Abstract

    This survey was conducted after President Bush's 1992 State of the Union address. Respondents were asked to evaluate Bush's performance as president and to indicate their approval or disapproval of the proposals made in the State of the Union address. They were also asked about the extent to which the proposals would help the economy, whether Bush would be able to accomplish most of the goals outlined in his State of the Union address, and whether the Democrats in Congress should help the president accomplish these goals. Additional questions dealt with respondents' opinions about allegations of an extramarital affair involving Democratic presidential candidate Bill Clinton and Gennifer Flowers. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, education, age, race, income, and sex.
