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.

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

Religious faith should be based on the literal word of God.

Everyone should stand up for the National Anthem.

No woman should be allowed to have an abortion, whatever the circumstances.

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

Economic globalisation will increase inequality.

Dealing with nuisance crimes like petty vandalism doesn't make serious crime less likely.

To protect society from drug abuse, narcotics must be banned.

Schools should concentrate on training people for the workforce.

In the right circumstances, cutting taxes can increase government revenue.

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

Scientists bear a moral responsibility for how their discoveries are used.

Officials like public prosecutors should be chosen by the government, not directly elected.

Drug abuse is a problem primarily because of its effects on drug users, not its effects on the rest of society.

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.
