Summary note
This special topic poll sought respondents' views on the January 23, 1996, State of the Union Address delivered by President Bill Clinton. Those queried were asked whether they approved of Clinton's message and if they heard any new ideas presented in the speech. Respondents were asked to give their opinions on the goals that President Clinton unveiled and to identify which programs they felt were most important: balancing the federal budget, raising the minimum wage, campaign finance reform, increasing efforts to fight crime and drugs, increasing means to protect pensions and retirement funds, and enacting a law to prevent employees from losing health insurance when they change jobs. In addition, respondents were asked to state with whom they identified more, President Clinton or congressional Republicans. Background variables include sex and political party.
