Summary note
This poll 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. Interviews were conducted with respondents in each state as they left their polling places on election day, November 6, 1984. Respondents were asked about their vote for president, political party identification, and opinions on several issues such as the United States budget deficit, national tax policies, and characteristics of the candidates that influenced voting decisions. The survey also includes state-specific questions that were only asked of voters in that state. Respondents were asked for their marital status, veteran status, religion, income, and whether they were a government employee or a school teacher.
