Dataset: Election Study 1990 (Politbarometer East)

Variable V231: Scalometer: M. Gorbachev

Literal Question

Q.59

Please tell me again by using this scale what you think of some leading politicians.
Plus 5 means that you think a great deal of the politician, minus 5 means that you don't think much of the politician 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.
