High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - January 31, 1974, High Point, North Carolina Harris Survey opinion poll finds some compassion for Nixon by Louis Harris the Public May be Down on president Nixon Over the watergate fallout but he has also evoked a certain amount of compassion in the process As indicated in the 56-38 per cent majority who agree with the statement that the president Harris a is trying to do his Best in an almost impossible Job coupled with the 72-20 per cent who still believe Nixon is a experienced and smart especially in foreign the Fate of the beleaguered chief executive appears to rest on this respect for his foreign policy performance plus Public sympathy for an underdog. Balanced against the deep doubts that persist about his credibility and integrity. In the foreign policy area. Nixon continues to receive High Marks. A thumping 68 per cent give him a positive rating on a working for peace in the and his rating is 61 per cent positive on a handling relations with 58 per cent positive on a handling relations with and 57 per cent on his a handling of the Middle East a substantial 82 per cent agree that a the is not afraid to take decisive action As in his trips to peking and Moscow and in his handling of the Middle East even in the president s most vulnerable area the handling of the watergate tapes where his standing earlier this month was 84-10 per cent negative the Public has not entirely closed the door on possible ultimate presidential exoneration. For example by 70-21 per cent a thumping majority agrees with the statement that a if the tapes show he was not involved in the watergate cover up then the country should join behind him in a show of National although 46 per cent believe he a should not be Given the Benefit of the doubt in the suit brought against film Rome apr a historians debate Over the role of Pope Pius Xii in a world War ii massacre of italian partisans by the nazis has been turned into a Legal Battle. The trial of a defamation suit against producers of the film massacre in Rome began tuesday. The suit to halt showings of the film was brought by the late Pope s Niece countess Elonora Cossignani who claims it unfairly depicts her Uncle As not having done All he could to prevent the massacre 30 years ago this March 24 the defendants Are producer Carlo Ponti director George pan Cosmatos and american writer Robert Katz author of a death in Rome a an account of the massacre. Missing tapes controversy a almost As Many 42 per cent believe he should. Earlier this month 44 per cent of the Public thought the president should resign or be impeached. The critical 51 per cent however has not materialized. At the same time no More than 47 per cent Are willing to say they want him to remain in office. The key to Nixon s Fate As it has been Over the Many Long and anguished months during which he has been on trial Are whatever ultimate specific charges May be levelled against him for example a if the . Senate watergate committee decides that president Nixon was involved in the cover up. A Clear 54-37 per cent majority feels the Congress should impeach him or. A if judge Sirica decided the president was negligent in the care he took of the watergate then by 48-40 per cent a plurality thinks impeachment would be in order. The Public is growing impatient for some definitive action by Congress or the courts but meanwhile the toll of the entire waiting period has been devastating on Nixon s credibility for instance by a record 76-19 per cent the Public agrees with the statement that he a has lost so much credibility that it will be hard to accept him again As by 49-37 per cent the Public no longer views him As a a Man of High up to this Point As judged by his most recent Low rating of Only 30 per cent positive in his Over All Job performance in the White House and by the meager 17 per cent who express Confidence in him personally. The Public is not ready to conclude that Nixon should be retained on the basis alone of his skill and experience in foreign affairs nor willing to accept that he should be Given the Benefit of the doubt. Perhaps the current state of president Nixon is Best summed up in the 70-22 per cent who say that a the does not inspire Confidence As a president for All of this however the Public still has left open a crack in the door before total condemnation of the chief executive. It is not so much a matter of conviction As it is a sense of fairness about the president. The people await a formal charge and then a decision being made pro or con. On the merits.
