Summary note
This poll, conducted March 22-25, 2001, is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. Respondents were asked to give their opinions of President George W. Bush and his handling of the presidency, the economy, international affairs, and environmental issues. They also expressed their opinions on whether President Bush cared more about ordinary people or large business corporations, as well as the most important task for President Bush and the Congress. The poll elicited respondents' views on the economic situation in the country, President Bush's tax cut proposal, the recent drop in the stock market, a plan in which people could invest some of their Social Security contributions in the stock market, and the budget surplus of $5.6 trillion over the next ten years forecast by the federal government. Respondents also answered a set of questions regarding political campaign funding, including whether they supported stricter laws controlling the way political campaigns can raise and spend money, whether politicians do special favors for people and groups who give them campaign contributions, and ways to reduce improper campaign fundraising. Background information on respondents includes age, gender, education, race, party affiliation, political orientation, and household income.
