Attitudes towards air safety, including effects on travel plans, were explored in the third survey. The fourth dealt with the United States/Soviet summit meeting in Geneva. Questions regarding the summit include approval or disapproval of Reagan's handling of the summit, whether and how to negotiate with the Soviet Union, attitudes towards Gorbachev, and the role the leaders' wives played.
