Abstract
Respondents' opinions on various issues were solicited in this panel survey, before and after the vice-presidential debate on October 5, 1989. Before the debate, respondents were asked their opinions of the Democratic and Republican presidential and vice-presidential candidates, how likely they were to vote in the 1988 presidential election, how they would vote, their choice if they were only voting for president or for vice-president, which candidate did the best job in the first presidential debate, and whether Dan Quayle's being in his 40s made him better able to represent people under 45. Their opinions were sought on the presidential candidates' judgment and ability to deal with an international crisis, and on the influence that groups such as labor unions, big business, pro-Israel groups, and groups that support the contras have on United States policy. Other topics included space exploration and travel, aid to Israel, negotiating with the Palestine Liberation Organization, the national economy, the American Civil Liberties Union, respondents' previous voting behavior, and the first presidential debate. After the debate, respondents were recontacted and asked who won the debate, whether there was one thing either of the candidates said or did that impressed them the most, who they would vote for, and whether the panelists were fair to both candidates. Both before and after the debate, respondents were asked whether they would worry if Quayle or Bentsen had to become president and whether Quayle and Bentsen understood the problems that confront a president. Background information on individuals includes party affiliation, liberal to conservative identification, armed forces membership, age, marital status, income, ethnicity, religious preference, employment status, farm employment, and education.Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR09141.v2
