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 to this survey were recontacted after participating in CBS NEWS MONTHLY POLL #2, FEBRUARY 1998 (ICPSR 2459). Respondents were asked to give their opinions of President Bill Clinton and his handling of the situation with Iraq, as well as their views of Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr. A series of questions focused on the potential use of the United States Air Force to bomb Iraq if Saddam Hussein refused to comply with United Nations regulations. Other topics covered British support of, and French and Russian opposition to, the proposed air strikes, whether more time should be given to the diplomatic efforts of the United Nations, and whether controlling Hussein was worth the loss of American lives should a ground war result. Regarding the Starr investigation into the alleged affair between former White House intern Monica Lewinsky and President Clinton, respondents were asked whether they believed that an affair took place, whether the investigation had truly been impartial, whether the public really needed to know anything about the scandal, and whether an individual is ever justified in secretly tape-recording a conversation. Background information on respondents includes age, race, sex, ethnicity, political party, political orientation, marital status, education, family income, voter registration and participation history, and age of children in the household.Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR02460.v1
