This poll, fielded July 5-8, 2010, is a part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicits public opinion on a range of political and social issues. Respondents were asked how much attention they paid to the 2010 election campaign, how likely it was that they would vote in the 2010 election for Congress and whether they would vote for the Democratic or Republican candidate. Respondents were queried on how closely they had been following the World Cup soccer competition, whether the World Cup competition had made them more or less interested in soccer, whether they would rather live through a really hot summer or a really cold winter, whether they feel more or less relaxed over the summer than they do during other times of the year, whether they try to get a suntan in the summer, and whether they read more books during the summer. Respondents were also asked whether they thought BP's relief wells would stop the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico by August of 2010, whether they favored or opposed a policy passed in a Nebraska town which required businesses and landlords to verify that their employees and renters were in the United States legally, whether they would prefer to travel to the past or to the future if time travel existed, and whether they thought that Americans of "Generation Y", or people born after 1980 would have a better or worse quality of life than that of the baby boomers. Finally respondents were asked whether they voted in the 2008 presidential election and who they voted for, whether they voted for a United States House of Representative in the 2006 election and which candidate they voted for, what year was the most recent election of any kind that they had voted in, and how long they have been living at their address. Demographic information includes sex, age, race, marital status, education level, household income, employment status, religious preference, type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural), political party affiliation, political philosophy, voter registration status, and whether respondents thought of themselves as born again Christians.
