This special topic poll sought respondents' views on the presidency, the recent dismissal by a federal judge of the Paula Jones' sexual harassment lawsuit against President Bill Clinton, and independent counsel Kenneth Starr's investigations of the president. Respondents were asked to give their opinions of President Clinton, First Lady Hillary Clinton, Vice President Al Gore, Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, Kenneth Starr, former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, former Arkansas state employee Paula Jones, former White House volunteer Kathleen Willey, and the United States Congress. Those queried were asked to assess Clinton's honesty, personal moral and ethical standards, strength as a leader, understanding of the American people, and ability to maintain a strong economy. A series of questions addressed the recent allegations of sexual misconduct and obstruction of justice waged against Clinton. Topics included the overall importance of these allegations to the American people, the actions that should be taken if Clinton were to be found guilty, the lasting effect of these allegations on Clinton's legacy, who was to blame for the scandals, and whether Clinton or his advisors attempted to obstruct Starr's investigation. Respondents were also asked to assess the future of Starr's investigation and whether Starr was seeking the truth or merely trying to damage Clinton politically. Demographic variables include age, race, ethnicity, sex, education, political party, voter participation history, and family income.
