But nonetheless runs ahead of the others with both groups of potential voters. Senators Percy Baker Buckley and former gov. Connally reverse this pattern and score better with independents than rank and file g. O. P. Voters. The Independent vote will be highly important for any Republican candidate to Appeal to since independents Are now More numerous in the country than republicans. Governors Reagan and Rockefeller do much better among the Republican faithful than among independents. Ford runs relatively Well among All groups but regionally leads by his widest margin in his native Midwest and in the South where any Republican must now do Well to Hope to win a National election. In the South he is ahead of Connally who is second and Reagan and Baker who follow in that order. Ford strength also tends to emerge in the Small town and Rural areas among voters 50 and Over among White Collar types with women More than men and with Middle income voters. Basically his pattern of Appeal is not dissimilar from that which president Nixon built up in the 1968 and 1972 elections. It is neither essentially a a conservative nor a Liberal a but rather is More representative of the Middle of Republican and Independent voter sentiment. This remarkable showing of Ford can be traced to the highly positive he created among the entire Public by his performances during the hearing Over his designation for the vice presidency a by 62 -15 per cent a majority gave him High Marks on his appearance before congressional committees. A on the eve of his scheduled confirmation a substantial 70 per cent favored his confirmation up from 61 per cent in october. A although 31 per cent preferred to withhold judgment by 50-19 per cent the remainder of the Public expressed the View that a if president Nixon were impeached and Ford were to become president he would be qualified to be a by 57 22 per cent a Clear majority of americans gave Gerald Ford potentially High Marks on his Likely performance in office As vice president. Clearly or. Ford established himself As a highly acceptable designed for the vice presidency. In the process he also convinced at least half the voters that he could serve As president if required.
