This poll, conducted February 1, 1998, 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 Bill Clinton, his moral values, his handling of the situation with Iraq, and his handling of the recent allegations concerning a sexual affair and obstruction of justice involving former White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Opinions were also sought regarding the United States Congress, First Lady Hillary Clinton, independent counsel Kenneth Starr, and Lewinsky. A series of questions addressed the sexual harassment charges brought by former Arkansas state employee Paula Jones against then-Arkansas Governor Clinton. Respondents were asked whether these allegations would interfere with Clinton's ability to govern, who was to blame for the creation of these situations, media coverage of the Jones and Lewinsky stories, Starr's investigation, and whether Clinton should resign if he is not impeached. Other items probed for respondents' views on the death penalty, specifically women and the death penalty, Texas death row inmate Karla Faye Tucker, and whether sentences should be reduced in situations where the prisoner has been rehabilitated. Additional questions focused on the use of United States military force to make Iraq comply with United Nations guidelines. Demographic variables include sex, age, race, education, political party affiliation, political philosophy, marital status, religious preference, voter registration and participation history, household income, and presence of children in the household.
