  • This special topic poll sought respondents' views on the Bill Clinton presidency, while primarily focusing on the presence of religion in respondents' lives. Those queried were asked to explain their religious upbringing and to compare it to their current feelings toward religion. Respondents were asked for their opinions on anti-Semitism, interracial marriage, interfaith marriage, jokes about the Pope, and the Bible's message regarding the differences between Blacks and whites. A series of questions asked respondents whether they believed in the following Christian tenets: Jesus Christ died on the cross, Jesus Christ is the son of God, Jesus Christ rose from the dead, and the existence of God. Additional topics covered whether God is a man or a woman, whether Jews were responsible for the death of Christ, and the meaning of the Bible's stories to the respondent. Demographic variables include age, education, race, sex, and religion.Cf:
