This poll, fielded July 9-16, 2007, is a part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicits public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. Respondents were asked whether they approved of the way George W. Bush was handling his job as president, whether they approved of the way Bush was handling the war in Iraq, foreign policy, the economy, and the United States campaign against terrorism. Respondents were also asked whether they approved of the way Congress was handling its job, whether they were pleased with what Democrats and Republicans were doing in Congress, for whom they would vote if the presidential election were held that day, in which primary they were planning to vote, and whether they were satisfied with the presidential candidates. Opinions were sought on the Democratic Party, the Republican Party, Michael Bloomberg, Bill Clinton, Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, Mitt Romney, Fred Thompson, John Edwards, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton. Questions about the war in Iraq included whether the United States was right in taking military action against Iraq, how respondents thought things were going for the United States in Iraq, whether the United States should increase the number of troops in Iraq, whether Congress should block funding for the war, and how likely another terrorist attack would happen in the United States. Additional questions addressed issues women face in the United States, abortion, health care, respondent voting history, how respondents received most of their news, the condition of the national economy, whether things in the country were on track, and the most important problem facing the country. Demographic information includes sex, age, race, education level, household income, military service, religious preference, type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural), political party affiliati Cf.:
