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 Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton and to comment on whether they approved of Bill Clinton's handling of foreign policy, the economy, health care reform, the budget deficit, and crime. The question of health care reform was examined in detail, as was the importance of universal health care coverage and who has the responsibility to provide insurance. Specific questions included whether the Republican or Democratic party was more likely to improve health care, whether taxes should be raised to provide funding for health care, and whether abortion should be part of the health care plan. Respondents were also asked to give their opinions of Oliver North, William Bennett, Pat Buchanan, Jerry Falwell, Rush Limbaugh, and Pat Robertson. Other topics covered Bill and Hillary Clinton's roles in the Whitewater real estate deal, the religious right and their political activity, the Republican party, homosexuality, television and radio talk shows, and Clinton's handling of the crises in Haiti and North Korea. Background information on respondents includes voter registration status, household composition, vote choice in the 1992 presidential election, political party, political orientation, education, age, sex, race, religious preference, and family income.
