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 identify the biggest problems facing the country and to comment on whether they thought the United States was generally going in the right direction or was on the wrong track. They were also asked whether they approved of Bill Clinton's handling of his job as president, the nation's economy, the federal budget deficit, foreign affairs, crime, the situation involving the former Yugoslavian republics of Serbia and Bosnia, and Clinton's health care plan. The health care plan was closely examined with questions on whether it was better or worse than the present system and whether the respondent supported federal price controls on medical expenses, an insurance program that would not pay for some medically unnecessary or low-success treatments, and federal laws requiring all employers to provide health insurance to full-time employees and pay some costs for part-time employees. Respondents were asked whether groups such as the American Medical Association, the health insurance industry, Republicans in Congress, Democrats in Congress, and the Clinton administration were helping or hurting efforts to improve the nation's health care system. They were also asked which political party they would trust to do a better job of handling the nation's economy, crime, foreign affairs, improving education and schools, maintaining a strong national defense, helping the middle class, holding taxes down, helping the poor, providing affordable health care, encouraging high moral standards and values, creating jobs, reducing the federal budget deficit, and making American industry competitive. Other topics covered neighborhood crime, prisons, the respondent's impression of Japan, and the arrest of an official of the Central Intelligence Agency accused of spying for the Russians. Demographic background variables include political orientation, age, race, income, and education.Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR06618.v1
