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, as well as their views on the September 11 terrorist attacks targeting the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, DC. Respondents were asked to express their opinions on President Bush's handling of the attacks, their personal feelings about the attacks, their confidence in the United States government's ability to catch the people who planned the attacks, and whether the United States should take military action. In addition, respondents were asked questions regarding whether the United States was in or near a recession. Questions were also posed regarding air travel in the United States and whether respondents might, in the wake of the terrorist attacks, surrender certain personal freedoms, such as having the government monitor the telephone calls and e-mail of ordinary Americans. Questions were also asked regarding immigration and the treatment of Arab Americans. Background information on respondents includes age, gender, political party affiliation, military service, marital status, education, race, and income.

Within households, respondents were selected using a method developed by Leslie Kish and modified by Charles Backstrom and Gerald Hursh (see Backstrom and Hursh, SURVEY RESEARCH. Evanston, IL: Northwestern University Press, 1963).
