description:
This poll, conducted May 29-June 1, 2007, 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. A national sample of 1,205 adults was surveyed, including an oversample of 204 Black respondents. Respondents were asked whether they approved of the way George W. Bush was handling the presidency and issues such as the economy. Views were sought on whether the country was moving in the right direction, how well members of the United States Congress were doing their jobs, and whether President Bush or the Democrats in Congress could be trusted to do a better job handling important issues. Respondents were asked how closely they were following the 2008 presidential race, for whom they would vote if the presidential primary or caucus was held that day, their opinions of the presidential candidates, and the single most important issue in their choice for president. A series of questions addressed the Iraq war, including the number of United States military forces in Iraq, the effect of the war in Iraq on the campaign against terrorism, and possible outcomes if the United States were to withdraw from Iraq before civil order was restored there. Other topics addressed immigration policy and United States Attorney General Alberto Gonzales' handling of the firing of nine chief federal prosecutors. Demographic information includes sex, age, race, marital status, household income, household union membership, education level, political party affiliation, voter registration status, political philosophy, religious preference, whether respondents considered themselves to be born-again Christians, and whether respondents and their parents were born in the United States.
