Broken Contract? Changing Relationships between Americans and Their Government

By Stephen C. Craig | Go to book overview

Appendix:
Wording of Survey Questions
The following questions have been drawn from the American National Election Study (ANES) surveys from 1964-1992:
Partisan, Ideological, and
Social Class Self-Identification
1. . Party: Generally speaking, do you usually think of yourself as a Republican, a Democrat, an Independent, or what? [If Republican or Democrat] Would you call yourself a strong. . . or a not very strong. . . ? [If Independent] Do you think of yourself as closer to the Republican Party or to the Democratic Party?
2. . Ideology: We hear a lot of talk these days about liberals and conservatives. Here is a seven-point scale on which the political views that people might hold are arranged from extremely liberal (1) to extremely conservative (7). Where would you place yourself on this scale, or haven't you thought much about this? [Respondents also are asked to place various political figures, e.g., candidates for president and for House and Senate, on this same scale.]
3. . Class: There's been some talk these days about different social classes. Most people say they belong either to the middle class or the working class. Do you ever think of yourself as belonging in one of these classes? [If yes] Well, if you had to make a choice, would you call yourself middle class or working class?

Performance Evaluations, Economic Assessments,
and Partisan Choice
1. . Do you approve or disapprove of the way. . . is handling his job as president? Do you approve/disapprove strongly or not strongly?
2. . Do you approve or disapprove of the way [the president] is handling our relations with foreign countries? Do you approve/disapprove strongly or not strongly?
3. . Do you approve or disapprove of the way George Bush is handling the crisis in the Persian Gulf? Do you approve/disapprove strongly or not strongly?
4. . In general, do you approve or disapprove of the way the U.S. Congress has been handling its job? Do you approve/disapprove strongly or not strongly?
