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 were asked to give their opinions of President George W. Bush and his handling of the presidency, foreign policy, the economy, and the situation with Iraq, as well as their views on the United Nations and its handling of the situation with Iraq and other international problems. Respondents were asked to assess their confidence in Bush's ability to make the right decisions about the situation in Iraq and the use of military force to remove Iraqi President Saddam Hussein from power. Their views were sought on whether there was sufficient evidence that military action was necessary, whether diplomatic solutions had been exhausted, and whether United Nations weapons inspectors should be given additional time. A series of questions focused on the United Nations Security Council, including whether military action should be taken without the support of the United Nations, whether the United States should ask for United Nations consideration if a "no" vote was anticipated, and how the situation with Iraq would affect the United Nations' ability to influence future international matters. Those polled were asked about the implications of a war with Iraq: whether the removal of Hussein was worth the potential loss of American life, how a war would impact the United States economy, and whether the threat of terrorism against the United States would increase. Additional questions addressed the lack of French support for United States military action against Iraq, whether world leaders respected Bush, and whether Bush's mention of his religious beliefs when discussing possible military action against Iraq was appropriate. Background information on respondents includes age, gender, voter registration and participation history, political party, political orientation, marital status, religion, importance of religion in daily life, education, Hispanic descent, race, children in household, and household income.Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR03756.v3
