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, foreign affairs, and nuclear weapons policy. In addition, respondents were asked how much of a threat the Soviet Union, China, and communism posed to the security of the United States, if they favored or opposed the pro-democracy demonstrations in China, how important it was for the United States to show strong support for the pro-democracy movement in China, and if they approved of Bush's reaction to the Chinese government. Those surveyed were also asked about a variety of other issues including abortion, child care, air and water pollution, and raising the federal minimum wage level. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, 1988 presidential vote choice, education, age, religion, social class, marital status, household composition, labor union membership, employment status, race, sex, income, and state/region of residence.
