Abstract: This survey focused on the United States military action in Panama. Respondents were asked if they approved of the way President George Bush was handling the situation, if they approved of the United States' having sent military forces to overthrow Manuel Noriega, and if they would still approve if the action resulted in a large number of Panamanian civilian casualties. Those surveyed were also asked if they thought the reasons Bush had given for invading Panama were good enough to warrant the action, and if sending military forces into Panama to overthrow Noriega was legal under United States law. Other topics covered include questions about comparisons to Viet Nam, the level of danger to Americans in Panama, Bush's trip to Colombia to discuss the drug problem. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, age, sex, and state/region of residence.;
