  • Abstract

    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. A Black supplement of 116 respondents is included with the national cross-section of 1,557 respondents. Additional content areas included in this study were assessment of the respondent's faith in local, state, and national governments, voting on propositions on the ballot, the respondent's attempts to influence others to vote, participation in local school board activities and opinions on local education problems, and placement of political figures on a "feeling thermometer".
