This poll, conducted October 5-8, 2006, 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 whether they approved of the way President George W. Bush was handling the presidency and issues such as foreign policy and the economy. Respondents voiced their views and concerns about the most important problem facing the country, the condition of the national economy, and their own household's financial security. A series of questions addressed the upcoming congressional election, including whether respondents would vote for a Republican or Democratic candidate, their level of enthusiasm, whether President Bush would be a factor in their vote, and whether their clergyman had endorsed a particular political candidate or party. Opinions were collected on members of the United States Congress, Vice President Dick Cheney, Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and the Republican and Democratic parties. Respondents were quizzed on their knowledge of the presidential line of succession, and gave their opinions of the Mark Foley scandal, whether they trusted the federal government to do what was right, and the practice of members of Congress adding provisions to legislation that included government spending for their own districts, known as earmarking. Views were sought on the war with Iraq, the consequences of a withdrawal of troops from Iraq, and whether President Bush and the Bush and Clinton administrations took the threat of terrorism seriously prior to the attacks of September 11, 2001. Additional topics addressed homosexuality and nonpartisan elections. Demographic information includes sex, age, race, education level, household income, marital status, religious preference, frequency of religious attendance, type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural), length of t ime living at current residence, political party affiliation, political philosophy, voter registration status and participation history, the presence of children and household members between the ages of 18 and 24, and whether respondents considered themselves to be born-again Christians.
