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, the campaign against terrorism, and the economy, as well as their views on Dick Cheney and his handling of his job as vice president. They also commented on the national economy, the stock market, Bush's proposals for reforming corporate accounting practices, the Bush administration, disputes between Israel and the Palestinians, the United States' responsibility for and capability of resolving the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, and United States military actions against Iraq to remove Saddam Hussein from power. Also probed were current and probable future unemployment in the respondents' households, their retirement status and situation, and their family financial situation. Those queried also presented their views on whether the United States had the right to try to weaken and overthrow governments that were unfriendly to the United States or that were believed to pose a threat to the United States. A series of questions focused on Elvis Presley, his home in Memphis, Tennessee, called Graceland, and rumors and stories about Elvis Presley being alive. Background information on respondents includes political affiliation, marital status, religion, education, age, gender, race, and income.
