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. Respondents were asked to give their opinions of President Bill Clinton and his handling of the presidency, the economy, foreign policy, and the situation in Bosnia, as well as their views on First Lady Hillary Clinton and Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole. Those queried were also asked for their opinions on the 1996 presidential and congressional elections, the Republican primaries, the dispute over the federal budget, and the tax system. An additional series of questions addressed the United States' space exploration programs. Topics covered an assessment of NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration), whether their budget should be increased, whether the space shuttle program should be expanded, whether the United States should join efforts to build an international space station, and whether the costs of space exploration programs were justified by the results. Respondents were also asked to assess their knowledge of current events, and their involvement in community and civic organizations. Background variables include age, race, sex, education, political party, political orientation, voter registration and participation history, family income, demographics of the respondent's community, and subscription to newspapers and weekly news magazines.
