This poll, fielded January 6-8, 1992, 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 George H.W. Bush and his handling of the presidency, foreign policy, and the economy. Respondents were asked to list the most important problem facing the country, which candidate they would vote for if the election for president were being held that day, and whether they were likely to vote in the Democratic or Republican presidential primary or caucus. Several questions asked for respondents' opinions of the Democratic and Republican presidential nominees, which candidates they would like to see win the nominations for president, and what issues they would like to see the candidates emphasize in their campaigns. Opinions were collected on how much George H.W. Bush cared about the general public, whether he distributed his time properly between foreign policy problems and problems at home, and whether his visits to countries in Asia would increase the number of jobs in the United States. A series of questions addressed the causes of homelessness, whether it was something the government could do a lot about, and whether respondents had personally seen a lot of homeless people in their community. Additional questions asked respondents to rate the condition of the national economy, whether they would be better off financially if George H.W. Bush was re-elected president, whether recession was something a president could do a lot about, and whether George H.W. Bush was healthy enough to be an effective president for a second term. Demographic variables include sex, race, age, household income, education level, political party affiliation, political philosophy, and voter registration status.
