of April-May 2004 Poll
My name is _____________.
I'm calling for Retro Poll,
a) lessening world
tensions and improving chances for peace (25.0%).
In this poll,
we are interested in whether Americans agree with each other on the impact
of government policies in the war on terrorism and other areas of national
policy. You will notice that the first part asks for factual information
and the second part for your opinions. In the first part it is better
to say you don't know than to guess the answer to any question. Few people
will know all the answers. Please try and be honest and complete the poll.
We'll tell you where to find the right answers later.
