Friday to Midnight the the a Harris by Louis Harris by a substantial 55-32 per cent a majority of Likely voters support the continued heavy bombings of North Vietnam by the United states. And by 64-22 per cent the mining of North vietnamese harbours by this country is also backed by american Public opinion. The rationale behind Public thinking is that a by mining harbours and bombing the North vietnamese will come to peace terms faster a a a View held by a 53-32 per cent margin. In addition by 74-11 per cent a lopsided majority supports president Nixon a Contention that a it is important that South Vietnam not fall into the control of the thus by a 47-35 per cent margin a plurality of the Public now opposes a coalition government in Saigon a if that were the Only Way we could get peace in vie name the widest plurality in opposition to such a coalition solution the Harris Survey has recorded since March of 1971. Yet these results from the latest poll of 1640 Likely voters conducted in person across the country Between August 30 and sept. I Tell Only half the Story about the profound shift that has taken place in the past month in american Public opinion about the Vietnam War a much of the renewed credibility of Nixon policies on Vietnam can be traced to the succession of statements and Campaign tactics of senator George Mcgovern on the Issue. Back in May by a substantial 54-21 per cent margin a majority of the voters agreed that Mcgovern a deserves credit for being against the Vietnam War before other yet now in september this credit has shrunk to no More than a 42-41 per cent Edge a dramatic drop of 32 Points in the margin paying tribute to Mcgovern a Early stand against the War. A contributing to this decline in Confidence in Mcgovern on Vietnam is the 58-18 per cent disagreement with the recent statement by the South Dakota senator in effect that a the . Was More brutal in its bombings than the communists when they occupy parts of South a by 56-15 per cent the voters also feel that it was a wrong for Mcgovern to predict that if he wins the White House in november general Thieu will flee South Vietnam and a coalition government with the communists will take a by 49-20 per cent a plurality of the voters simply do not give credibility to the charge by Mcgovern a running mate Sargent Shriver that a the Nixon administration blew a real Chance to achieve peace in 1969. Just after it took office a even though the Shriver charges were backed up by Averell Harriman and Cyrus Vance the negotiators in Paris under president Johnson. A by 51 to 26 per cent a majority of the Public does not agree with sen. Mcgovern s charge that a Henry Kissinger s travels to Paris and Saigon were no More than a publicity stunt that falsely raised Hopes for a by 42-25 per cent a plurality of the voters agree with the Nixon administrations claims that a by sending Pierre Salinger to talk to the North vietnamese in Paris Mcgovern was harming efforts by Kissinger to negotiate a settlement a a a by 49-32 per cent a plurality of the voters also does not go along with the claims of former attorney general Ramsey Clark after visiting North Vietnam that a the .
