Abstract
This survey polled delegates to the 1992 Democratic National Convention. Respondents were asked to agree or disagree with statements covering a variety of issues, including raising taxes to deal with the federal budget deficit, a constitutional amendment outlawing abortion, and cutting defense spending in half over the next five years. Respondents were also asked whether it was the role of government to see to it that everyone had a job, whether they favored smaller government with fewer services or larger government with many services, and whether a breakdown in family values or government neglect of the cities was more responsible for the riots that had occurred in Los Angeles. The survey also posed questions regarding a tax cut for middle-income Americans and a program of national health insurance funded by tax increases. A major portion of the survey queried delegates on their choice for the 1992 Democratic nominee for president and vice president, and posed questions regarding various scenarios which assumed the nomination of Bill Clinton. Questions pertaining to the presidential election in general included delegates' opinions of Ross Perot, the likelihood of a race among Bush, Clinton, and Perot being decided in the House of Representatives, and whether Democratic House members should support Clinton unconditionally if the election was decided by the House of Representatives. Additionally, the survey questioned respondents about potential items for inclusion in the Democratic party platform, including increasing taxes to reduce the deficit, federally-funded abortion on demand, tax cuts for the middle class, limiting individual campaign contributions to $100, free trade with Mexico, and the $35 billion urban program proposed by the nation's mayors. Background information on delegates includes whether they held a Democratic party or public position and whether that position was elected or appointed, political orientation, education, age, religion, marital status, employment status, race, income, and sex.Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR09935.v1
