This poll, fielded September of 2011 and the first of two, is a part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicits public opinion on a range of political and social issues. Respondents were asked how well Barack Obama was handling the presidency, foreign policy, the economy, and job creation. Respondents were also asked for their opinions on whether Congress was performing their job well, the budget deficit, program cuts, and raising taxes. Subsequent questions sought respondents' opinions on the health care law, the most important problem facing the country at that time, whether they felt the country was moving in the right direction, and their favorability of potential Republican candidates for president. A series of questions addressed whether respondents voted in the 2008 presidential election, who they voted for, and whether they were registered to vote. Additional topics included opinions on the Tea Party movement and the amount of influence they have in the Republican Party, unemployment and concern about future unemployment, respondents' local job market, the recession, abortion, global warming, and Social Security. Demographic information includes sex, age, race, marital status, education level, household income, employment status, religious preference, type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural), political party affiliation, political philosophy, voter registration status, and whether respondents thought of themselves as born-again Christians.
