    This study is part of a time-series collection of national surveys fielded continuously since 1952. The election studies are designed to present data on Americans' social backgrounds, enduring political predispositions, social and political values, perceptions and evaluations of groups and candidates, opinions on questions of public policy, and participation in political life.

United States citizens 18 years of age or older.
The individuals interviewed in 1958 were a representative cross-section of persons of voting age living in private households in the United States, but additional complications were introduced by the fact that the 1958 study was the second wave of a panel study that had begun in 1956. The 12 largest metropolitan areas of the United States were drawn with certainty to represent themselves. The rest of the country was formed into 54 strata. From each stratum, a primary sampling unit consisting of a county or group of counties was drawn with probability proportional to size.
