THE 1996 ELECTIONS: ISSUES, CHARACTER, AND CAMPAIGNS
In both the 1996 Presidential and the U. S. Senate race, economic concerns such as the economy, the budget deficit, and unemployment top the list of a wide range of issues New Jersey voters identify as being most important in the election, and the Democratic candidate is preferred as being the most capable of handling the issue New Jersey voters select as being the most important. By a margin of 47 to 34 percent registered voters say Bill Clinton can do a better job than Bob Dole in handling the issue they select as being most important in the Presidential race, and Bob Torricelli (22%) is selected over Dick Zimmer (16%) in the race for U. S. Senate.
