Political Survey

In this survey, you are asked to give your opinion of a set of statements characterising political views. Please rate each statement on the scale given, which runs from "strongly disagree" to "strongly agree".


For statistical purposes, please tell us where you live:

The following are a set of propositions. Tell us whether you agree with them, as they would apply to the country where you live.

Class distinctions should not exist.

It's more important to punish criminals than to rehabilitate them.

Drivers shouldn't have to pay taxes to cover damage to the environment caused by motor transport, since that would price some people off the roads.

Companies should be free to pay their executives any salary, however large.

Our nation has a glorious history.

Some crimes are so serious that the only proper punishment is the death penalty.

We should offer sanctuary to anybody fleeing persecution.

Abortion is acceptable in some cases.

There is no such thing as an immoral sexual act between consenting adults.

Our armed forces should intervene to stop genocide in other countries.

Aggressive foreign policies will not put a stop to international terrorism.

Society is more important than family.

It's acceptable for a businessman to bribe a foreign official to complete a sale.

We should make use of any technology, if it benefits us.

There's no need to subsidise farmers if we can buy food more cheaply from abroad, even if that meant they went out of business.
