Abstract
This poll, fielded October 18-21, 2000, 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 Bill Clinton and his handling of foreign policy and the current situation in the Middle East, as well as their views on Vice President and Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore, Connecticut senator and Democratic vice-presidential candidate Joseph Lieberman, Texas governor and Republican presidential candidate George W. Bush, and former Secretary of Defense and Republican vice-presidential candidate Dick Cheney. Those polled expressed their interest in and opinions about the 2000 presidential election, their readiness to vote in the upcoming election, and their level of support for both candidates, Gore and Bush. Respondents were also asked whether on the day of the survey they would vote for Gore or Bush. They then answered the same question, choosing among four candidates: Gore (Democratic Party candidate), Bush (Republican Party candidate), Pat Buchanan (Reform Party candidate), and Ralph Nader (Green Party candidate). A series of questions addressed the presidential campaign, including whether respondents viewed the campaign as interesting or dull, and how they assessed the candidates with respect to political philosophy, job preparedness, ability to negotiate with Congress, ability to negotiate effectively with world leaders, leadership qualities, integrity, whether they cared about the American people, whether they spent their campaign explaining their position or attacking their opponent, ability to deal with an international crisis, and the candidates' motives. Respondents' views were sought regarding the dispute between Israel and the Palestinians, including which side respondents sympathized with, whether Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and the government of Israel and/or Palestinian leader Yassir Arafat and the Palestinians had been keeping or breaking agreements made in the peace process, whether Bush had the experience necessary to negotiate a peace settlement, whether either candidate would become personally involved in foreign problems similar to this or delegate to his advisors, and whether the United States could do anything to establish peace in the Middle East. Additional topics included respondent impressions of the third presidential debate held on Tuesday, October 17, 2000, and their opinions on whether a candidate's position on issues or their personal qualities were more important, the influence of campaign promises to improve education, the use of school vouchers, and whether the New York Yankees or the New York Mets would win the World Series. Background information on respondents includes age, gender, political party, political philosophy, voter registration and participation history, education, marital status, religion, race, Hispanic descent, years in community, children in household, household income, and computer and Internet access.Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR03222.v1
