Dataset: Election Study 1990 (Politbarometer East)

Variable V110: Scalometer: P.-M. Diestel

Literal Question

Q.20

Please tell me by using this thermometer (from plus 5 to minus 5) what you think of some leading politicians. +5 means that you think a great deal of the particular politician. -5 means that you do not think much of him at all; using the values in between you can express your opinion more precisely. If you do not know one or the other of the politicians,
you do not have to rate him, of course.

(In September: If you don't know one or the other politician, please answer 'don't know this politician')
What do you think of...

(Interviewer: shuffle cards and hand to respondent. Present scale!)
