New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 29, 1980, New Braunfels, Texas State National HvraldZtitung 2A Debate wont sway trio feels DA MAS AIl President Jimmy Carter and Republican Ronald teaman offered a clear but their televised debate will not sway many voters in next weeks jeneral arcoidhif to three prominent Texas I would venture to say that about 99 percent of those who watched the debate have already made up their and those who havent by now probably wont former John told The Associated Press in I dont think that there is that many un decided voters at not in I think a lot of people in Texas just dont think it is anybodys business how they are to Thats always been a tradition in this Democratic National Chairman John White said in an interview televised by WTAATV in Bill Reagans Texas campaign also doubted Tuesdays confrontation would sway the course ol the I think most people preHv much had their minds made I dont think this is uinn to change a lot of peoples minds here in Clements said in the televised interview Tuesday Hut while Clements and While ajjrced on the impact and that the two candidates demon strated clear they expressed sharply different opinions on the winner of Carter and Reagans first and only I am convinced Reagan was the clear I think it came very clear that Reagan stands for less government and president Carter stands for more govern more centralized control in I think that is the underlying theme and it came through loud and said I expected the president to do but I didnt expect him to beat Reagan at his own After Reagan is supposed to be the polished And it was the president tonight that was relaxed and poised and con fident throughout as well as being more ar ticulate and a great deal more factual on his said I think most Americans and true Texans would find Reagans positions in some of these cases almost said When the president said and quoted him Reagan that it wasnt any of our business about the proliferation of nuclear particularly in answer to the terrorist The questions that Reagan could not an swer on minimum wage and social security I think were These are questions a president must deal He cant ignore Thats not less Thats ignoring the legitimate needs of the American Connally said he thought President Carter tried to personalize the debate and make Carter the But he Reagan responded Reagans performance probably will help him in the said who bowed out early in his bid to defeat Reagan in the Republican I think Reagan performed if not to KDFWTV in Dallas conducted a random telephone survey of 100 persons after the debate and reported that 54 percent thought Reagan 29 percent thought Carter won and 17 percent were The station reported 57 percent of those surveyed said they would vote for 34 percent said they would vote for KDFW also reported 15 percent of the sample said the debate changed their minds about who they would vote KVIATV in El Paso said percent of the 450 to 500 persons who called that station thought Reagan won the and thought Cartel That station said percent of its callers said the debate was instrumental in changing their minds on which candidate to Debate poll Both Reagan made inroads into undecided AP poll says By ASSOCIATED PRESS President Cartel and Ronald Reagan made significant and roughly equal gains in the preferences of registered voters as a result of their campaign an exclusive poll by The Associated Press The poll found in a debatewatching audience that leaned to Republican presidential candidate Reagan in the first each man gained percentage mostly from the ranks of the previously un The nationwide canvass surveyed registered voters who watched the debate on television Tuesday It yielded results from which each side could claim victory in the longawaited In addition to the ipoint the chief findings of he aken in the 110 minutes after the debate went off the were these More Reagan supporters watched than did Carter In this Reaganleaning percent said he did the better job while 34 percent said I emocrat Carter did a margin that roughly parallels the margin between them among the both before and after the man made significant inroads into the others Both held on to vir tually all of their supporters who watched the Viewer reaction to the debate broke a partisan with those who generally agreed with Reagan thinking be did the best job while Carter scored highest with those who found him well informed andor in agreement with their The poll was conducted in two A scientifically selected nationwide sample of registered voters was questioned by telephone These same people were called back after the debate and said they had That the TV audience leaned more heavily to Reagan than the larger Monday sample is clear from these findings Among the group questioned Reagan got 3 Carter and An derson 7 figures roughly in line with the findings of major national polls taken during the last 10 But among the who he standing as of Monday was Reagan Carter Anderson 8 and 15 percent Among the after the the figures stood at 49 percent for1 39 for i for Anderson and 6 percent still Thus both Reagan and Cartel achieved identical 0point gains after the Reflecting the partisan interpretation of the the registered voters who thought Reagan did the best job said they did so because they said they agreed with what Reagan People who liked Carters performance said the incumbent seemed to know what lie was talking about better than Korty percent of those who picked Reagan said they did so because he said things they agreed Twentyfour percent said he answered the questions well and 21 percent said lie seemed to know what he was talking Seven percent said he looked and acted like a president and 5 percent said Carter did a poor Thirtyfour percent of those who thought Carter did better said he seemed to know what lie was talking Twentytwo NKW YORK API Nearly people paid liO cents each to take part in an instant ABC News telephone survey following the presidential and by a 2tol margin they said Ronald Reagan had gained more from the encounter than President ABC said that of the callers who reached one of two special 900prefix numbers during the 100 minutes following Tuesday nights people or percent dialed the number designated for Reagan and or M percent dialed the one assigned to The network said an especially heavy volume I recorded from Western but had no more precise breakdown ABC stressed that the survey was not scientific but merely an attempt to gauge quickly the impact of the debate on The tally lacked statistical validity unlike the traditional public opinion the sampling was not selected to represent the electorate as a It simply represented the views of those wild Callers who reached one of two numbers broadcast by ABC during the debate had then choice recorded by computer and were greeted by a recorded message dial said This is Frank Thank you for dialing this number and automatically registering your opinion that President Carter Ronald Reagan gained the most in this ABC said the telephone company would bill callers 50 Despite an electronic system which ABC said allowed to calls to be counted by phone company circuits various problems were reported around the Many callers were frustrated by repeatedly being told all circuits were while some percent said he answered the questions well and 18 percent said he looked and acted like a president Sixteen percent said Carter said things they agreed with and 7 percent felt Reagan did a poor The remainder in each case gave other reasons or were not The question used to measure debate performance was phrased this in your did the best job in the debate The interviews were conducted by Chilton Research Services of for The Associated The results measure not the opinions of all registered voters but only those of registered voters who watched the debate As with every sample survey the results of the AP poll could vary from the opinions of all those who watched the debate because of chance variations in the For results based on interviews with more than the results are subject to an error margin of 4 percentage That if one could have talked to all those registered voters who watched the debate last there is only one chance in 20 that the results would vary from the results of this poll by more than 4 percentage Viewers liked poll people in and Kansas reported that when they called the number for Reagan they got the message for ABC said the phone company gave assurances that despite what the recordings the calls were scored In Long callers who neglected to use the 900 prefix swamped the police department switchboard for a ABC said it had withheld advance an nouncement of the survey or the telephone numbers to minimize the chance that an organized phonein campaign would distort the Great debate at a glance CLEVELAND AP Here are the highlights of the debate between
