SE All goes fine Kennedy clings to thin lead Poll reveals virtual tie By KENNETH FINK Princeton Research Service PRINCETON N J If the presidential election was helc in the nation today between the KennedyJohnson and the NixonLodge tickets the results would be very close judging from the findings of a survey completed within the last 10 days Kennedy holds a very slight negligible lead over Nixon THIS IS THE way the poll sters see it at this time Kennedy 501 Nixon 495 Undecided 04 The above figures apply to the popular vote only not to elec toral votes It must be kept in mind that public opinion samplings are normally subject to a margin of deviation of approximately four per cent when the findings are at or near the 50 per cent mark way they are today It must also be very definitely understood that todays findings reflect opinion as of last week and that changes can and may take place over the coming 26 days FOR THIS REASON reporters will be sounding sentiment on the two tickets until the Satur day evening before election day and the latest survey findings will be reported in this newspa per as fast as they are tabu lated Trained thoroughly experi enced reporters put the question to a representative crosssection in certain key areas whose past voting behavior has been care fully studied and weighed in relation to the nations vote It is as a result of these methods
