Annotation: The Coalition for America's Children participated in a national survey conducted in April 1993 to probe voter attitudes on children's issues.
Abstract: Survey results indicated the increasing importance of children's issues in the minds of American voters; 28 percent said guaranteeing health care, education, safety, and economic security for all children should be the top priority of government. Children's issues were considered to be higher in priority than job training, economic development, taxes, crime prevention, and national health care. Support for children's programs was particularly strong among Florida voters, minorities, working women, college graduates, union households, voters with children living at home, and urban voters. About 43 percent of voters believed President Clinton's policies helped children and indicated the government should play an active role in children's programs, particularly with regard to health, safety, and education. At the same time, voters expressed suspicion about the ability of government to effectively administer children's programs. 4 figures
