This poll, fielded September 26-October 1 and October 6, 1996, solicited public opinion prior to and immediately following the first presidential debate held October 6, 1996. Respondents polled prior to the speech were asked to rate their level of satisfaction with the way things were going in the United States, and whether the government could have a positive impact on people's lives. Those respondents who were registered voters were asked about the likelihood that they would watch the upcoming presidential debate, what they thought were the most important issues for the candidates to discuss, whether the debate should include more than just the candidates from the two major political parties, and for whom respondents would vote if the election were held that day. Other questions asked about the political campaigns of President Bill Clinton and republican candidate Bob Dole, and the most important thing a president could do to solve issues such as economic problems and crime. A subset of respondents agreed to participate in a call-back poll, conducted immediately following the October 6, 1996, presidential debate. These respondents were asked whether they had watched or listened to the debate that evening, which candidate they thought won the debate, whether each candidate addressed the issues that mattered most to the respondent, whether Reform Party candidate Ross Perot should have been included in the debate, and whether the debate affected their vote. Information was also collected on whether respondents considered themselves part of the conservative Christian political movement, and whether they listened to political call-in radio shows. Demographic variables include sex, race, age, employment status, household income, education level, type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural), political party affiliation, political philosophy, voter registration status, the presence of children and teenagers in the household, and whether respondents had a child entering high school in 1996.
