This data collection consists of 16 surveys conducted in states that held primary elections between February and June, 1988. Voters were asked to fill out questionnaires as they exited the polling places. Respondents were asked if they voted in the Democratic or Republican primary (Parts 1-3, 6-7), for whom they voted, if there were any candidates they definitely would not vote for (Parts 1-4), their vote choice among the various Democratic candidates facing George Bush (Parts 6-16), and factors that influenced their vote. In Parts 10-16, voters also were queried regarding the vice-presidential nominee selection process, their choice of a running mate for Michael Dukakis, and their opinions on the views of Dukakis and Jackson. Additional information supplied for all respondents includes their views on the Reagan presidency, their 1984 presidential vote choice, age, education, race, sex, income, religious preference, ancestry, and political orientation.
