Abstract: This survey focused on respondents' opinions of national political figures including Lloyd Bentsen, George Bush, Michael Dukakis, Bob Dole, Jack Kemp, Jesse Jackson, George Deukmejian, and Nancy Kassebaum, and also included questions on how respondents would vote in the 1988 presidential election and the United States Senate race between Lloyd Bentsen and Beau Boulter. Respondents were asked how the nomination of Lloyd Bentsen as Michael Dukakis' running mate would affect their vote in the presidential election, if they wished Dukakis had named someone else, if they thought Lloyd Bentsen should withdraw from the Senate race, whether Ronald Reagan was doing his job well, and if they thought of George Bush as a real Texan. Background information on individuals includes whether the respondent was a registered voter, party affiliation, liberal to conservative leaning, age, income, religious preference (including fundamentalism), education, and race.
