This data collection examines attitudes of delegates to the 1988 Republican National Convention on a variety of social and political issues. Major areas of investigation include delegates' views on ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment, raising taxes to deal with the federal budget deficit, using the CIA to undermine hostile foreign governments, reinstituting the military draft, outlawing abortion, government provision of a national health care program, and reducing the military budget. Delegates also were asked where they would place George Bush on a scale running from very liberal to very conservative, whom they favored for the vice presidential nomination, and if they would work enthusiastically for Bush if he won the nomination. Profiles of the delegates include participation in Republican party affairs, elected or appointed public positions currently held, self-placement on a liberal/conservative scale, prior attendance at a national convention, education, age, religion, marital status, labor union membership, employment status, race, sex, income, region of residence, and delegate type.
