Abstract: For this data collection, voters were interviewed as they left their polling places after voting in either the Democratic or Republican primary in 29 states. Respondents were asked a series of questions covering presidential choice, most important issues and candidate qualities, feelings about the government, level of commitment to the candidate for whom they voted, political spectrum self-identification, and family financial situation. Other topics covered in individual states included opinions of candidates and approval ratings, party platforms, current news topics (such as urban unrest and the state of the economy), and ''hot- topics" unique to each state such as opinions regarding sexual orientation, religious identification, employment issues, law enforcement issues, and environmental positions. Demographic information collected includes sex, race, age, family income range, religion, education, and party identification.
