This special topic poll, fielded November 29-30, 2009, is a part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on a wide range of political and social issues. This poll surveyed 773 adults in the United States. Respondents were asked how they would feel if detainees from Guantanamo Bay were transferred to a prison in their state, what major city they thought best reflected American culture and values, whether they had friends of a different race, and which type of Hollywood movie they would most like to star in. Respondents were also asked about their future plans for the year, whether they planned on voting in the 2010 election, losing weight, volunteering or doing charity work, quitting smoking and drinking, taking a vacation, changing jobs, paying taxes on time, and spending more time with the family. Information was collected on how respondents watched their favorite television shows, which superhero power they would like to have, whether or not they had children, and whether they were happy with their current childcare arrangements. Opinions were solicited about respondents views on Wal-Mart, whether they had a favorable view of Wal-Mart and why, whether there was a Wal-Mart in their area, and how often they shopped at Wal-Mart. Demographic variables include sex, age, race, education level, marital status, household income, employment status, political party affiliation, political philosophy, voter registration status, religious preference, and the presence of adults between the ages of 18 and 29 in the household.
