Abstract
This poll, conducted August 11-13, 2006, 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 whether they approved of the way George W. Bush was handling a variety of issues including the presidency and the campaign against terrorism, what was the most important problem facing the country, and which political party was more likely to ensure a strong economy and make the right decisions when dealing with terrorism. Opinions were collected on whether the federal government had done all it reasonably could to improve airport security since September 11, 2001, how effective government screenings of United States airplane passengers were in stopping terrorist threats, whether respondents were afraid of flying in an airplane, and whether it was necessary to regulate carrying liquids and other items onto airplanes. Respondents were asked whether they were more concerned that the government would fail to enact strong anti-terrorism laws or that it would enact new anti-terrorism laws that excessively restricted civil liberties, whether the planned attacks on planes leaving from England represented a major terrorist threat to the United States or to England, and how likely Arab Americans, Muslims, and immigrants from the Middle East would be singled out unfairly in the United States. A series of questions asked whether the war in Iraq was a part of the war on terrorism, whether the United States was winning the war on terrorism, and whether respondents thought the United states did the right thing in taking military action against Iraq. Additional questions addressed the topic of the conflict between Israel and Hezbollah militants in Lebanon, the war against terrorism, and the al Qaeda terrorist network. Demographic information includes voter registration status and participation history, political party affiliation, political philosophy, marital status, sex, religious preference, education level, age, household income, race, whether respondents had any children under the age of 18, and the presence of household members between the ages of 18 and 24.Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR04621.v1
