Abstract

This poll, fielded April 13-14, 1999, is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. Respondents were asked to give their opinions of President Bill Clinton, Vice President Al Gore, First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, former New Jersey Senator Bill Bradley, Texas Governor George W. Bush, former head of the American Red Cross Elizabeth Dole, Arizona Senator John McCain, and former Vice President Dan Quayle. Other topics covered the conflict in Kosovo, problem students in public schools, and personal belief in miracles. Regarding the Kosovo conflict, respondents were asked whether they approved of United States and North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) policy and Bill Clinton's handling of the crisis, how closely they had followed the news about the conflict, whether the intervention was worth the possible costs, how long they thought the crisis would last, whether ground troops were likely to be employed, whether the conflict would spread beyond Kosovo, and the best overall strategy for bringing peace to the region. On the subject of problem students in public schools, respondents were prompted for suggestions on what to do with students who frequently fight with other students, or are chronic substance abusers or truants. Specifically, respondents were asked about the efficacy of separating problem students from the general population of students, including the use of alternative schools, and whether they would pay higher taxes to implement that strategy. Switching to respondents' personal belief in miracles, opinions were solicited on scientific explanations for miracles, on the believability of religious healing and religious icon manifestations, and whether respondents had any personal experience with miracles. On other matters, respondents' opinions were elicited on whether Arkansas judge Susan Weber was right in holding Bill Clinton in contempt of court for lying under oath in the Paula Jones sexual harassment lawsuit, and whether respondents were ready for the upcoming federal income tax filing deadline. Background information on respondents includes age, race, education, sex, religion, marital status, political party, political orientation, access to and use of computer technology, recent voting history, age of children in household, and family income.
