A Citizen Evaluation Of The Morial Administration, 1994-1997, Susan E. Howell Nov 1997

A Citizen Evaluation Of The Morial Administration, 1994-1997, Susan E. Howell

Survey Research Center Publications

Mayor Marc Morial remains very popular with a 72% approval rating. This rating is only slightly lower than it was eighteen months ago (April, 1996).

Racial polarization is also basically the same as it was in the spring of 1996, and the slight decline in approval occurred in both racial groups. Racial division is minimal or non-existent on many of the quality of life measures below, yet it is pronounced on mayoral approval. The reasons will be explored later in this report.

Which Way Is Right?, Jane Leftwich Curry Oct 1997

Today's Polish party leaders show the same lack of concern with traditional political definitions. Back when the Communist Party was voted out, the meaning of the election seemed clear to most voters: the choice was for or against continued communist control.
