This poll, fielded February 18-19, 1989, 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 Bush and his handling of the presidency and foreign policy. The main focus of this data collection was on United States-Japan relations and public attitude toward these relations. Respondents were asked to describe the relationship between United States and Japan, how they viewed the future of the United States-Japan trade, and what they considered the role of world powers might be in this arrangement. Respondents were also asked for their views on the 1942 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the state of the American society before and after World War II, Japan's military power, as well as their overall feeling toward the Japanese and Japanese companies based in the United States. The survey also included questions concerning the trial of Oliver North in the Iran Contra affair. Background information on respondents includes age, race, sex, education, religion, political party, political orientation, marital status, voter registration and participation history, Hispanic descent, and family income.
