Abstract: This data collection is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that evaluate the Bush presidency and solicit opinions on a variety of political and social issues. Topics covered include the state of the economy, the Panamanian situation, and the respondent's voting behavior during the November 1988 election. In addition, respondents were asked if they approved of the way Congress and in particular Jim Wright were doing their jobs, if they knew the names of their governor, United States senators, and/or representatives, and if they approved of the performance of these officials. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, 1988 presidential vote choice, education, age, religion, marital status, household composition, labor union membership, employment, status, race, and income.
