the Public Broadcasting Service
(PBS), showed that 39 per cent
of the nearly 600 adult televi-
sion viewers questioned felt
that Ford was "ahead on the
debate." Carter was favored by
31 per cent and 30 per cent
thought it was a draw.
The pollsters also asked the
supporter for each candidate
what they thought of the other.
Only eight per cent of the Ford
supporters felt Carter "won,"
while 13 per cent of the Carter
supporters felt President Ford

IN AN EARLIER exchange,
Carter had said that if he was
to be tied with all acts of a
Congress in which he never
served, Ford should be identi-
fied with the administration of
Richard Nixon, in which he did':
"I think the real issue in this
campaign and that which you
