High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - September 26, 1972, High Point, North Carolina 8a High Point Enterprise tuesday sept. 26, 1972 a South Oft the Harris Survey ants new Mcgovern Narrows Nixon Lead in polls police chief by Louis Harris for the first time since May Richard Nixon s Lead Over George Mcgovern has narrowed rather than widened in the latest Harris Survey conducted Between september 19-21. However the Nixon margin is still a substantial 28 Points 59-31 per cent compared with the 34-Point Edge he held in Early september. Here is the trend in the Nixon Mcgovey race in response to this Basic question asked periodically this time among 1,668 Likely voters a this november for president it will be Between Richard Nixon for the republicans and senator George Mcgovern for the democrats. If you had to choose right now whom would you be for a Nixon Mcgovern trend i Iii Harris Nixon Mcgovern not sure pct. Pct. Pct.

Nixon is now ahead of Mcgovern by Only 47-45 per cent among the Young compared with a 52-42 per cent advantage three weeks ago. At the same time president Nixon still holds a substantial Lead among Union members 55-34 per cent and among Catholic voters 58-31 per cent. Both groups have been traditional centers of democratic party support in past presidential elections. Even the jewish vote which traditionally has gone 5-1 democratic has averaged out Over the past four surveys to no better than 46-41 per cent for Mcgovern. Mcgovern a Basic Handicap in this election continues to be among that 52 per cent of the voters who consider themselves democrats. Here is the trend among democratic voters since May trend among democratic voters Nixon Mcgovern not Suro pct. Pet. Pct. Mid sept 41 48 la Early sept. 43 47 to aug. 38 m 9 july 36 53 la june 36 55 9 May 29 59 12 although the Mcgovern Lead among democrats went from a Low of four Points earlier in september to seven Points in this latest Harris Survey he is far off the Mark of what a democratic candidate must receive from his own party base in order to make the election close. In 1968, for example when a relatively High 14 per cent of All democrats defected to the third party candidacy of George Wallace and an additional 16 per cent went for Richard Nixon. Democratic nominee Hubert Humphrey nonetheless was Able to win 70 per cent of his own party members. At the moment Mcgovern is running 22 Points off the percentage of democrats won by Egypt minister completes visit Brussels a foreign Linister Mohammed Al Zayyat Egypt returned to Cairo on saturday after a three Day visit luring which he negotiated a Rade agreement with the eur Opean common Market. The agreement is expected to be ii Ned before the end of the rear. The egyptian minister was received by King Baudouin and Tad talks with Deputy Premier Indre cools and foreign minis or Pierre Harmel amid the lightest Security measures Ever seen in Belgium. Zayyat and his aides were lot subjected to the body Learch now enforced by Airport Security but belgian finance minister dries Vlerick and his wife in route for Washington were searched. Humphrey four years ago. Reaction to this latest Harris Survey could go in two opposite directions i that the six Point decline in the Nixon Lead is a signal that Mcgovern has now turned the Corner and the election will proceed to become much closer or 2 that with a 28-Point bulge in his favor Richard Nixon has an insurmountable Lead. Neither interpretation is warranted from these results. In All probability if the election were held last Friday the Day after the polling ended the Harris Survey division of 59-31 per cent could Well be overstating the Nixon margin for these reasons a the undecided vote is running higher than usual at this stage of a presidential election a sign of much flux and even instability among the voters. A when the to per cent of the Likely voters who Are undecided Are Analysed they Are 4-1 democratic in their party affiliation. They also tend to be less critical of Mcgovern and More hostile to the president than the voters As a whole of Mcgovern were to capture 80 per cent of this undecided vote the outcome then would be 61-39 per cent a a Lead six Points lower than the one Nixon now enjoys. Such a result would roughly approximate the size of Lyndon Johnson s win Over Barry Coldwater in 1964. A the electorate has indicated a desire to vote democratic for Congress in 1972. This underlying Anchor Point of inclinations to vote democratic in other elections being held this year not Only could make Richard Nixon a coattails quite Short this november but could actually Cost him some votes in the presidential race. A president Nixon has recently gained in personal popularity and Confidence among voters during the same period that sen. Mcgovern has slipped in Public Confidence. Nonetheless Nixon a own Confidence rating is no better than 51-39 per cent positive a 12-Point margin in contrast to his Overall 28-Point Lead. If in the remaining weeks of the election voters focus primarily on Richard Nixon personally rather than George Mcgovern As has been the Case for some time now it is possible for the Nixon current margin to shrink.
