Carter called anew in his san Diego speech for a five year agreement to halt nuclear testing for All purposes and for a voluntary International moratorium on the Purchase and Sale of nuclear fuel enrichment and reprocessing plants. The democratic nominee had noted earlier that a highly enriched uranium can be used to produce weapons and that a plutonium when separated from the remainder of the spent fuel can also be used to produce nuclear the United states and other nuclear Powers have refused to Export plutonium reprocessing plants. But the government has sold or is considering Selling nuclear reactor plants to several foreign countries Carter s aides said the nominee s Campaign work week will henceforth be shortened to an average of 4v2 Days on the average and. Few events will be scheduled past 7 . Quot he was getting tired Quot said one Carter lieutenant. 4 4 when he gets tired he gets visibly strident and goes on the attack sometimes aides said also that the former Georgia governor would return to a Basic stump speech which emphasizes the need for Trust in government and Strong competent leadership a theme he often used in the primaries rather than focusing on specific issues. Carter will continue to make Issue speeches aides said but nonetheless wants to put his earlier Campaign approach to greater use. As for the flaps Over the Playboy and a interviews one adviser admitted a a its been rough. Ifs almost painful to watch the evening news Quot but Carter attributed those problems to Quot my free expression a a tendency he said he would learn to control. A a i think my free expression of views probably causes my problems a he said. For Ford it was a sweltering humid Day on the River. The president s Blue shirt was soaked with sweat As he spoke from the upper of the riverboat then climbed Down to shake hands on the levees . Patrol boats police cruisers and a helicopter escorted the floating Campaign while bands along the Shore played Quot rolling on the River Quot and similar favourites the ships steam Calliope chimed in with a Dixie one of the president s guests on the Natchez was the wife of democratic gov.

On a key question of Ford Quot not being smart about the issues the country is facing a 50-38 per cent of the voters now deny the i s charge a change from the narrow 46-42 per cent plurality who denied it before the debate moreover the 47-41 per cent plurality who disagreed that the president a has done a Good Job in bringing the country out of the recession a has shrunk to a 44 per cent standoff a definite improvement. Carter also benefited from the debate. Before it a 4829 per cent plurality nationwide Felt that he was a a lacking in but after the debate Only a narrow 45-41 per cent plurality still Felt this Way. The number of voters who credit the georgian with being a a Man of High integrity Quot Rose from 69-73 per cent after the debate. And the number who like him because he a is not part of the Washington d.c., establishment also went up from 64 to 67 per sent. On the matter of Quot having the better experience to be president for the next four years Quot Ford holds a Large 57-27 per cent Edge Over Carter. However on the Pivotal question of which Man voters Quot can Trust More in the White House a Carter is ahead by a close 39-37 per cent putting aside their views on substantive issues it seems Likely that a major Factor in the election will be How the american voters weigh the relative advantages of president Ford s Long experience in government against governor Carter s distance from the Washington d.c., establishment. But even More important May be that simple question of Trust. The tiny two Point margin suggests that the race for the White House could narrow even More in the weeks to come.
