Abstract: This special topic poll sought respondents' views on President Bill Clinton's handling of the situation in the former Yugoslavian republics and the Whitewater real estate venture. Respondents were asked whether they believed high government officials or the national news media when their reports differed, and whether the national news media paid too much attention to topics such as Whitewater, health care, crime, and the economy. The role of the news media in the Whitewater situation was also probed. Demographic background variables include political orientation and sex.
