High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - February 25, 1974, High Point, North Carolina 8a High Point Enterprise monday february 25,1974 the Harris Survey americans do not want impeach vote rushed gop voter strength Low Gallup reports local Bills called unnecessary by Louis Harris by nearly 3 to i the american people want impeachment proceedings against president Nixon to be carried Forward but they Are in no Rush to bring the Issue to a vote in the House of representatives. While 29 per cent of the Public agree with the statement that a an Early vote on the matter should be taken to get the matter settled once and for All a a larger 37 per cent opts for a a vote on impeachment Only after All the facts have been gone into carefully even if that took no More than 24 per cent say they a oppose a vote on impeachment thus the decision of the House to go ahead with impeachment proceedings receives a thumping vote of endorsement by the american people. Among people who Are enrolled republicans Only 41 per cent oppose this step and Only 36 per cent of those who voted for president Nixon in 1972 feel the same Way. Above All the Public wants the impeachment process to be handled fairly and a careful search of the facts conducted before any decision is arrived at. This reflects the experience of the american people in the past year when they have Learned much about the judicial process. Basically they want the accused in this Case the president not to be condemned before the fact and to have a full Chance to be heard even before the question is decided whether he will be brought to trial before the u. S. Senate. Before former vice president Agnew pleaded nolo contender in court a majority of the Public was unwilling to condemn him despite widely circulated stories about his alleged involvement in kickbacks from contractors and a belief by most people that he was indeed guilty. But by the same Token it is evident from these latest Harris Survey results that the people themselves believe the charges against the president Are so grave that a thorough inquiry into the possibility of impeachment is justified. Princeton n j. Apr the latest Gallup poll shows Republican strength for this Falls congressional elections at the lowest level in the 38 years the Gallup organization has been taking such surveys. The polling organization asked a total of 3,183 registered voters in two National surveys in january which party they would rather see win the congressional election in their Home districts. The democratic party enjoys a 2-1 Lead 58 per cent to 29 per cent with 13 per cent undecided. A Gallup spokesman said the results indicate the gop would suffer a loss far greater than the average 29-seat loss suffered by the president s party in off year elections in this Century. The pollsters said the National nature of the Survey makes it impossible to determine How Many House seats each party might occupy after the next election. But they said the margin could be wider than the 295 to 140 majority the democrats held after the landslide Victory of Lyndon b. Johnson in 1964. The Gallup organization pointed out that previous sur Veys have shown the Republican share of the vote increases As voter turnout decreases which it often does in off year elections.
