This special topic poll covered Virginia's race for governor. Respondents were asked whether they fo llowed the race closely and whom they would vote for, George F. Allen or Mary Sue Terry. The elections for lieutenant governor between Michael P. Farris and Donald S. Beyer and for attorney general between James S. Gilmore and William D. Dolan were also addressed, and respondents were asked whether the lieutenant governor candidates' presence on the ticket affected the governor's race. Additional questions covered whether respondents supported the five-day waiting period for handguns, parole for people convicted of certain kinds of violent crimes, letting school districts decide whether to let parents use state money in the form of vouchers to send their children to private school, and the 24-hour waiting period before a woman can obtain a legal abortion. Respondents were also asked whether they thought the Religious Right had too much or too little influence on Virginian state politics. Demographic background variables include political orientation, sex, age, race, income, and education.
