Abstract: This special topic poll focused on the debate in Congress over the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Respondents were queried regarding how closely they followed the debate, whether the United States would gain or lose jobs as a result of NAFTA, and whether they thought Congress should approve or reject NAFTA. They were asked whether Ross Perot's opposition to NAFTA had made any difference in their opinions and whether they believed Ross Perot's criticism to be responsible or irresponsible. Additional questions covered whether NAFTA would help or hurt American workers, Mexican workers, Canadian workers, American companies, and American consumers. Those surveyed were also asked whether they watched the debate on NAFTA between Ross Perot and Vice President Al Gore and who they thought won the debate. Demographic variables include political orientation and sex.
