This poll, fielded June 24-28, 2011, is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicits public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. Respondents were asked whether they approved of the way Barack Obama was handling his job as president, the economy, the housing market, the situation with Afghanistan, the threat of terrorism, and the situation with Libya. Multiple questions addressed the national economy, including its condition and outlook. Several questions also sought opinions on the Democratic and Republican parties, and which party would best achieve certain goals. Further questions asked for respondents' perspectives on the housing market in terms of buying, selling, and in general in their communities. Opinions were also sought concerning the investment of buying a home, blame for the mortgage crisis, government involvement in the mortgage crisis, mortgage interest as a tax deduction, whether it was best to rent or buy, benefits of foreclosure, and home affordability. Respondents were also asked if they had missed mortgage payments or made improvements to their home in the last three years. Additional topics include the war in Afghanistan, the role of the United States in Libya, social media, college affordability, the 2012 Republican presidential candidates, and knowledge of and relationship to an individual killed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack. Demographic variables include sex, age, race, education level, household income, religious preference, type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural), whether respondents thought of themselves as born-again Christians, marital status, employment status, number of children, number of people in the household between the ages of 18 and 29 years old, political party affiliation, political philosophy, and voter registration status.
