This special topic 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. This survey, fielded January 25-26, 2000, was a call-back of the January 15-17, 2000, cohort from CBS NEWS NEW HAMPSHIRE PRIMARY POLL #1, JANUARY 2000 (ICPSR 2919), and was conducted to assess respondent views on the upcoming presidential election and New Hampshire primaries. Respondents were asked to give their opinions of President Bill Clinton and his handling of the presidency as well as their opinions of New Hampshire governor Jeanne Shaheen and her handling of the state. Those polled were asked whether they intended to vote in the New Hampshire presidential primaries to be held February 1, 2000, and what their opinions were of Democratic candidates Vice President Al Gore and former New Jersey senator Bill Bradley, and Republican candidates Texas governor George W. Bush, Arizona senator John McCain, publisher Steve Forbes, radio talk show host Alan Keyes, Family Research Council president Gary Bauer, and Utah senator Orrin Hatch. Respondents were queried as to which candidate they intended to vote for and which candidate they thought would win, and whether they had ever considered voting in the opposing political party's primary. Respondents were further asked what they thought about the candidates, which candidate could be trusted to keep his word, to understand the complicated problems a president has to deal with, and to say what he believes, and whether they thought any candidate had made a decision as a direct result of a major campaign contribution. Additional questions relating to the presidential campaigns probed respondent views on the influence of television ads, which candidate's health-care plan respondents supported, whether respondents had been contacted by a campaign, whether they had seen any of the candidates in person, and whether they knew who won the Iowa caucuses. Respondents who had shifted their support to a different candidate since their original interview were asked why they had done so. Their views were also sought on whether Bradley's medical condition, arrhythmia, would affect his ability to serve effectively as president. Additional survey items focused on abortion, the most important problems facing the country, and whether homosexuals should be permitted to serve in the military. Background information on respondents includes age, gender, political party, political orientation, voter registration and participation history, marital status, education, religion, race, Hispanic origin, household income, computer and Internet access, and military service.
