This data collection consists of responses to a survey of voters in the New Jersey gubernatorial election. Respondents were asked which gubernatorial candidate they voted for, how much they liked that candidate, when they decided on that candidate, which issues and factors most affected their vote, if TV ads influenced their vote, which candidate's policies would be most like Tom Kean's, and if they approved or disapproved of Tom Kean's governorship. Voters also categorized the candidates as liberal/moderate/conservative, evaluated campaign performance, and identified those candidates most responsible for negative campaigning. Additional items include how respondents voted in the state assembly election, how assembly candidate abortion views influenced voter decisions, how voters viewed abortion, and factors most likely to bring down auto insurance premiums. Demographic information includes sex, race, age, ethnicity, religion, party affiliation, political orientation, education, union membership, family income, parental status, Atlantic City gambling involvement, and knowledge of someone with AIDS.
