Americans definitely favor Summit meeting by Louis Harris despite the fact that chairman Kosygin May not come to new York for the United nations 25th anniversary Celebration the american people favor a Summit meeting Between the russian Leader and president Nixon by a lopsided margin of 80 to 8 per cent. The Hope for accommodation Between the worlds two superpowers is reflected in the fact that by 51-32 per cent a majority of the Public feels that it is possible for the . And Russia to come to a workable Long term agreement to control wars in the world. A nationwide Survey of 1602 families taken Between september 18 through 24, demonstrates clearly that sizable majorities of the people favor agreements Between the . And Russia in a Host of specific areas. This rather heavy endorsement for the United states and Russia to reach a wide variety of accords comes at a time when by All reports relations Between the two super Powers have notably cooled. Tensions Over the Middle East crisis the verified reports of soviet mis Siles being moved into place during the cease fire along the Suez canal a claims that the russians Are building submarine bases in Cuba a All have increased rather than eased tensions. Despite these developments american Public opinion persistently clings to advocacy of a rapprochement Between the two countries. Some of the specifics give clues As to Why this is so. Most striking is the sense of the american people that with modern nuclear capabilities any future War could Well spell the extermination of the human race. As a consequence heavy majorities favor accords to keep european nations from going to War with each other joint action Between the . And Russia to contain communist Chi nays growing nuclear strike capacity and agreement to limit anti missle defense systems which is being explored in the Salt talks scheduled to reconvene in a few weeks. It is evident that the american Public is saying that if the two super Powers cannot reach agreement to control wars in the world no decision on whether to show proof of ceasefire violations then the Hopes for survival world wide Are slim indeed. There is also substantial support for greater sharing of scientific exploration by the two countries both in space and in the oceans Depths. In addition exchanges of scholars and cultural groups once viewed with suspicion Are now widely advocated. Finally there is better than 5-to-l agreement that Trade Between the two nations should be expanded. Despite All the tensions and the Patent Lack of peace across the face of the Earth it is abundantly Clear that the Hope for peace is still probably the most popular notion among the american people. Many americans were plainly disappointed at Kosygin a initial decision to forego his new York visit next week and with it that possibility of a meeting with the president.
