Steve who were both greeted enthusiastically by the crowd. Although Fords remarks did not include any references to Carter mrs Dole mentioned the Friday night debate and said she was glad that Ford did not resort to using the Quot vagueness and generalities of the Carter Campaign but he instead did a Quot masterful jobs of meeting the issues her emphatic denial that Carter definitely did not have the South a locked up a brought cheers from the Over 7,000 spectators. Ford in an Effort to dispute claims by Carter backers that he has been hiding in the White House cited the numerous states he has campaigned in during the past ten weeks he said that gov James e.

Mears a special correspondent Washington it apr Jimmy Carter has the Lead and president Ford s last Best Hope for a Quick turnaround is gone As the White House rivals wage the hectic final Campaign missions that will propel one to Power and Send the other Home in defeat. With to Days to go. The pollsters and politicians agree that Carter is in front if narrowly and that Ford will have to find a catch up formula if he is to gain with ballots the office he now holds by appointment. But As Carter has said from the outset the Power and prestige of an incumbent president is an awesome thing difficult to contest and if Ford has not used his office adroitly so far in the Campaign it still is his to Wield Ford himself acknowledges that it will be a major upset a a the political Surprise of the Century a a if he wins and he says he can do it it May be that if Ford is to win he will need Carters unwitting help through a major political Blunder something the former Georgia governor has avoided throughout his climb from virtual anonymity to the Tav orites a role that now is his. Ford can hardly devise a new strategy at this Point. He devised several during his Campaign against Ronald Reagan yet he had his hands full to the end in their contest for the Republican nomination so unless outside events intervene in the kind of crisis that can galvanize support for a president the course is set his had been largely a stay at Home Campaign but he will not sleep in the White House again until election night. He will be on the Road on an intensive Campaign swing aimed heavily at the big states and their crucial caches of electoral votes.

The a sampling of 1,027 viewers in the hours after the debate showed 35 5 per cent thought Ford had won and 33 i per cent thought Carter had won. And 31.4 per cent thought it was a draw the margin of error for a Sample that size is about 2.9 per cent in either direction meaning the 2 4 percentage Points separating Carter and Ford cannot be reliably pro but Carter did t need to win he needed to avoid a setback and that he appers to have done Ford and son Steve wave to crowds at state fair in Raleigh saturday map Airt Proto.
