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 whether they approved or disapproved of President Bill Clinton's handling of his job, the nation's economy, foreign affairs, the health care system, and the federal budget deficit. Those queried were also asked whether they approved or disapproved of Clinton's economic proposals to Congress and his handling of the situation in the former Yugoslavia -- specifically, whether the United States should take military action with or without European allies. Respondents were also asked to compare George Bush and Clinton and to comment on homosexuals in the military and Ross Perot's qualities and qualifications for the presidency. Demographic background variables include political orientation, sex, age, race, income, and education.
