Description
  • Abstract

    This poll 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 George W. Bush and his handling of the presidency, foreign policy, and the economy, as well as their views on Vice President Dick Cheney, his handling of the vice presidency, and his role in the administration as compared with previous vice presidents. They also expressed their opinions on the state of the national economy, the role of the president in the administration as far as decision-making is concerned, and Secretary of State Colin Powell. A series of questions focused on the division between Republicans and Democrats in Congress. Respondents were asked to give their opinions of the effects of a tax cut on the economy, Bush's proposed $1.6 trillion tax cut, and the $1.2 trillion tax cut passed by the Senate, as well as their views on Bush's budget plan priorities. Those queried also presented their views on the death penalty for persons convicted of murder, relations between the United States and China, environmental issues relating to the economy and the production of energy, and the execution of convicted Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh and media coverage of the event. Background information includes the respondents' religion, political affiliation, marital status, education, income, race, gender, and age.
