AbstractThis poll, conducted July 21, 1996, is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. Respondents were asked to give their opinions of President Bill Clinton and his handling of the presidency. Those queried were also asked for their views on the crash of TWA Flight #800, the National Transportation Safety Board, commercial airline travel safety, and government regulation of airline travel. Comparative questions were asked about the safety of air travel versus other modes of transportation, and the safety of airports in the United States compared to airports in other countries. Other topics addressed how much control a president could have over terrorism as well as respondents' level of confidence that the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta would be safe from terrorism. Demographic variables include sex, age, race, political party affiliation, political party lean, education level, and family income, and age of children in household.
