Abstract
This special topic poll is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and a range of other political and social issues. The study was conducted in part to assess respondents' interest in and opinions about the 2002 gubernatorial and congressional elections in South Dakota. Residents of that state were asked to give their opinions of President George W. Bush and his handling of the presidency, as well as their views of Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, his handling of Senate Democrats, and his representation of South Dakota interests. Those queried were asked whether they intended to vote or had already voted through the mail or absentee ballot in the November 5, 2002, elections. Respondents were asked for whom they would vote if the election for governor were held that day, given a choice between Mike Rounds (Republican Party) and Jim Abbott (Democratic Party). Similarly, they were asked to make a choice between John Thune (Republican Party) and Tim Johnson (Democratic Party) for United States Senate, and between Bill Janklow (Republican Party) and Stephanie Herseth (Democratic Party) for United States Representative. Additional topics related to the Senate election focused on the involvement of people and groups from outside South Dakota, whether the respondent's vote could be thought of as a vote for/against Bush and/or Daschle, and whether either candidate had attacked the other unfairly. Respondents were asked to assess the importance of the following issues in their electoral decision-making: possible United States military action against Iraq, drought relief for South Dakota, the economy, and which political party controlled the United States Senate. Additional topics covered whether the economy and jobs, or terrorism and national security, should be the higher priority for the nation, whether respondents supported or opposed the United States taking military action to try to remove Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq, and whether respondents intended to vote through the mail, absentee ballot, or at their precinct polling place. Background information on respondents includes age, gender, political party, political orientation, voter registration and participation history, method of voting in previous elections, education, religion, marital status, Hispanic descent, race, years in community, and household income.Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR03707.v3
