This special topic poll focused on the American criminal justice system in general and specifically on the O.J. Simpson murder trial. Respondents were asked whether the criminal justice system and the media were biased toward O.J. Simpson and other Blacks or against them, and whether the trial affected the way white people view Black men. Additional race-related questions asked respondents whether they thought there would be more media coverag e or less if a white celebrity had been accused of the same crimes as Simpson or if Simpson had been accused of murdering two Black people. The role of the news media and whether they had been too harsh or too easy on Simpson in their coverage of his trial was also explored. The respondents' feelings about Simpson were probed in questions that asked how much sympathy they had for him because of everything that had happened, and if they had personally thought of him as a role model before the murders. Background information on respondents includes voter registration status, household composition, vote choice in the 1992 presidential election, political party, political orientation, education, age, sex, race, religious preference, and family income.
