Abstract: Data for this study were collected from a national quota sample with respondents interviewed both before and after the 1944 presidential election. Respondents were questioned about their party identification, opinions on postwar issues, their voting intentions and expectations about the outcome of the election, their sources of political information, the importance they attached to the election, and whom they believed to be Roosevelt's and Dewey's supporters. In addition, open-ended questions tapped areas the respondents considered to be major problems, campaign issues that influenced their vote, party differences, and evaluations of major presidential candidates and their ability to deal with specified problems. The dataset contains information for 2,564 respondents in the form of 123 variables.
