Kennedy says he has suggested unsuccessfully a that his name be dropped from the Public opinion polls listing 1972 Democrat presidential prospects because he Isnit interested but there is evidence the 38-year-old Massachusetts senator is not at All. Unhappy that his name is still there and doing quite Well. For Kennedy clearly has no intention of overdoing his renunciation of National ambitions in 1972. The reasoning according to sources familiar with Kennedy s thinking is this if he puts himself too far out of the running the party May pay less attention to what he says about National issues in the next two years. And he has said in an interview he Hopes to help shape the democratic issues of 1972. Kennedy says his position is unchanged he is committed to serve the full six years of the Senate term he won nov. 3. But nothing in politics is certain and no disclaimer of candidacy is irrevocable. The Early political planning of democrats seeking the nomination leaves room for Kennedy As a possible rival one Day. That Day almost certainly could not come until the 1972 convention is in session. In the interim the Kennedy game plan seems to involve doing Many of the things candidates do while staying out of the presidential primaries and sticking to his stance As a no candidate. The last of the Kennedy Brothers plummeted from his Early front runner position to that of non candidate july i.8,1968, when his car went off a Bridge on Chappaquiddick Island killing Mary to Kopechne. In the aftermath Kennedy said he was considering resigning his Senate seat then announced he would stay seek re election and serve the full term. With Kennedy an Early dropout sen. Edmund s. Muskie of Maine quickly soared into the nominal Ion Lead. Kennedy now says the Muskie margin May be insurmountable. But Muskie s closest rival in the Public opinion polls remains Iii dimly. _ a recent poll shows Muskie the favor ite of 33 per cent of the rank and file democrats with Kennedy ranked two Points behind. Another Survey indicates Muskie has the support of 49 per cent of democrats Kennedy 45 per cent. When that poll was broadened to include All voters Muskie s margin rocketed to 54 per cent against Kennedy s st. Kennedy said he was gratified at the support evidenced for him.
