This data collection is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that evaluates the Reagan presidency and solicits opinions on a variety of political and social issues. Topics covered include important problems facing the country, the economy, foreign affairs, United States relations with the Soviet Union, nuclear weapons policy, and a federal law requiring businesses to give workers 60-day advance notice of factory closings. In addition, respondents were queried as to which party had the best chance of winning the presidency in November, how closely the respondent was following the race, which candidate the respondent would vote for among several possible tickets if the election were held that day, what the respondent liked and disliked most about the candidates, and if the respondent had a favorable or unfavorable impression of various public figures. Respondents also were asked a detailed series of questions comparing the two candidates George Bush and Michael Dukakis, and another set of questions relating to Nancy Reagan's influence and her reported use of the advice of an astrologer. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, 1984 presidential vote choice, sex, education, age, religion, marital status, household composition, labor union membership, employment status, race, income, and state/region of residence.Cf:
