  • Abstract

    This poll, the second of two fielded June 2014, is a part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicits public opinion on a range of political and social issues. Respondents were asked primarily about how well Barack Obama was handling the presidency, foreign policy, the economy, and the war in Iraq. Opinions were collected on the role the United States should play in international conflicts, the effect the Obama administration has had on the threat of terrorism, whether the United States has a responsibility to do something about ISIS, the United States' involvement in the war in Iraq, and the Tea Party movement. Additional topics included whether respondents were registered to vote, the amount of attention they had given to the 2014 election campaign, how likely they were to vote in the 2014 midterm election, which party they would vote for, and their enthusiasm for the election. Demographic information includes sex, age, race, marital status, education level, household income, type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural), political party affiliation, religious preference, and whether respondents were or resided with someone that had served in the armed forces in Afghanistan or Iraq since 2001.
  • Methods

    The data are not weighted. However, the dataset contains a weight variable (WEIGHT) that should be used in analyzing the data. According to the CBS News Web site, the data were weighted to match the United States Census Bureau breakdowns on age, sex, race, education, and region of the country. The data were also adjusted for the fact that people who share a telephone with others have less chance to be contacted than people who live alone and have their own telephones, and that households with more than one telephone number have more chances to be called than households with only one telephone number.
