Abstract: This special topic poll focused on Ross Perot and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Respondents were asked whether they would choose President Bill Clinton or Ross Perot if a new presidential election were held, and whether Perot represented their views. Other questions probed for whether the respondent favored NAFTA and whether their United States representative's position on NAFTA would affect that person's reelection. Those queried were also asked whether they thought Perot was interested in doing what was best for the country or mainly what was best for himself personally and politically, and whether the news media paid too much attention to Perot. Demographic background variables include political orientation and sex.
