George Wallace not to run again on a third party ticket could Well Cost sen. George Mcgovern the democratic nominee As much As 5 percentage Points in the fall election. When Likely voters who prefer Wallace for the presidency a 15 per cent at latest count a Are asked to choose Between sen. Mcgovern and president Nixon they say they will vote Republican by 57-25 per cent. On a National basis the democrats up stand to lose a greater number of total votes in the North than in the Sou to a among former Wallace voters. In All 56 few per cent of the Wallace vote is drawn Quot from the More populous North and 44 per cent from the South where Nixon already runs strongly. In the North the Wallace vote at this stage of the Campaign splits a for president Nixon by a margin of 55-25 per cent. In the South. Wallace supporters prefer Nixon Over Mcgovern by 61-25 per cent. Although these patterns Are similar the Wallace vote in the North could be the key to the outcome of a close two Way presidential race in the Large Industrial states. The following table spells out the Impact of a Wallace withdrawal among key groups in the electorate. The results Are drawn from a Harris Survey conducted among 1.901 households nationwide Between july 1st and 6th Nixon Cains from Wallace supporters net Nixon Harris nationwide gain5 North 2 South 9 suburbs 4 18-29 year Olds 8 5.000 9.999 income 5 $10,000 14.999 6 Union members 4 independents 7 catholics 2 Between sen. Mcgovern and president Nixon they contribute a net gain of 4 Points to the Nixon column there. A among the under-30 group a majority of whom Are not on the College campuses former Wallace supporters now intend to give Nixon a net gain of 8 Points. This could sharply reduce the current Mcgovern Lead among the Young. A among Middle income groups where the Wallace vote had risen to 18 per cent president Nixon scores a net gain of 5 Points. This adds to Nixon a already wide Lead among Middle income voters. A among Union members where Wallace had attracted a substantial 18 per cent of the vote Nixon runs two to one ahead in preference and picks up a net gain of 4 Points. In 1968. Similar defections from Union ranks were evident and Only a concerted drive by Trade unions in the final month kept the Wallace total Down. Given the coolness to the Mcgovern candidacy by Union leaders this loss for the democrats could be costly. A among Independent voters 17 per cent of whom had intended to go for Wallace president Nixon registers a net gain of 7 Points. It is highly Likely that sen. Mcgovern a ultimate chances depend on his ability to carry the Independent vote in november. The former Wallace supporters could Well make that More difficult. A the politically sensitive Catholic vote also will be affected by where sex Wall cites end up on election Day. With Wallace out. Nixon scores a net gain of 2 Points. At last count voters who Are catholics were going 54-37 per cent for the gof candidate in a two Way race. Obviously the Early reactions of those who wanted to vote the implications of these findings Are a in the South the net pickup of 9 Points for president Nixon from the former Wallace vote gives the Republican a commanding 62-27 per cent Lead in that Region. In the North former Wallace supporters give Nixon an average gain of 2 Points. While this May seem like a Small difference the margin could prove decisive in a number of key Industrial states that Are Pivotal in the election.

However it should be pointed out that the two principal motivators of the Wallace vote stemmed from la a deep feeling against school busing to achieve racial balance and 2 from an alienation which focused heavily on tax inequities and tax Reform. The busing Issue works strongly in president Nixon a favor. But the tax Reform Issue definitely helps senator Mcgovern. So in the end. The direction in which the former Wallace vote will eventually go although at the moment heavily inclined toward Richard Nixon is still subject to the flow of the 1972 Campaign As waged by the candidates of the two major parties.
