Abstract
This poll, conducted October 6-9, 2000, is part of a continuing series of surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. The study was conducted to assess respondents' interest in and opinions about the 2000 presidential election. Respondents were asked whether they intended to vote in the upcoming presidential election on November 7, 2000, and for whom they would vote if the election were held on the day of the survey, given a choice between Vice President Al Gore and Connecticut senator Joe Lieberman (Democratic Party) and Texas governor George W. Bush and former Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney (Republican Party). Respondents gave their opinions of both presidential and vice presidential candidates. They defined what they considered as the most important problem facing the country and rated various characteristics of the presidential candidates, including their trustworthiness, leadership ability, diligence, and preparedness. Views were elicited on the presidential and vice presidential debates, on George W. Bush and Al Gore's ability to debate, whether the debates had influenced respondents' choice for president, and if there was a possibility of their watching the second presidential debate. The survey also polled respondents on some major topics of the presidential campaign, such as a future budget surplus solution and the Social Security and Medicare programs. Respondents discussed the likelihood of George W. Bush or Al Gore, if elected, reducing taxes, improving education, reducing the cost of prescription drugs for the elderly, and making the tax system more fair. On other matters, respondents gave their opinions regarding abortion and whether they were in favor of the FDA's decision to allow the use of RU-486, the abortion pill. Background information on respondents includes the most recent year they voted in any kind of election, the year they last registered to vote, voter participation history, marital status, access to a computer and the Internet, the importance placed on religion and which religion, and the number of children in the household. Additional background information was elicited on education level, age, race, number of years at the current address, income level, and whether there were multiple phone lines in the house.Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR03216.v1
