Abstract: This poll 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 approval rating of Bill Clinton with respect to his handling of the presidency, foreign policy, and the economy, and to comment on whether he had strong qualities of leadership. Those queried were also asked for approval ratings of Lamar Alexander, Bob Dole, Phil Gramm, Newt Gingrich, Richard Gephardt, Al Gore, and Ted Kennedy. Additional topics covered include welfare reform, a balanced budget, flat tax proposals, assault weapons, defense spending, and the major league baseball strike. 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
