Reagan's ERA,
cost him suppor

abortion views

From AP and UPI
Ronald Reagan's opposition to the
Equal Rights Amendment and abortion
appears to be costing him votes in his
quest for the White House, particularly
the votes of women.
The latest Associated Press-NBC
News poll says Reagan draws less sup-
port from women than, from men. And
Jimmy Carter is the beneficiary of that
difference, drawing much of the sup-
port among women that Reagan fails to
AT LEAST PART of that weakness in
Reagan's appeal to women comes
from his stands against both the
proposed Equal Rights Amendment
and abortion. Support for both is
significant among all likely voters
And Reagan does the worst among
women who disagree with his positions
on the two issues.
Interestingly; independent John An-
derson, a strong supporter of the ERA
and opponent of efforts to ban abortion,
benefits only marginally from his
policy differences with Reagan and
CARTER, SPENDING the weekend
at Camp David, Md., was preparing for
a week of campaigning in the Northeast
and Midwest. Reagan, taking a break in

the middle of a two-week coast-to-coast
swing, was staying at his California
ranch near Santa Barbara.
Anderson, in a 12-hour blitz, spoke to
students at the University of Maine at
Orono, then went to Bangor,
Burlington, Vt., and Boston.
Reagan planned to leave his ranch
tomorrow en route east to Des Moines
and other stops, reaching Washington
at the end of the week.
CARTER HAS scheduled an excur-
sion tomorrow to New York, and visits

later in the week to Detroit

Both abortion and ERA are backed
by people likely to cast ballots on Nov.

A woman's right to an abortion is
favored by a 72-24 margin among likely
voters, with the remainder not sure.
The ERA is backed by a 41-28 edge, with

Polls hod ey further debates

An AP News Analysis
LOS ANGELES-Ronald Reagan
says he'll debate President Carter if the
circumstances are right-but the only
thing that seems likely to end his reluc-
tance is a drop in his standing in the
As he heads into the final month of the
presidential campaign, the Republican
nominee has a nine-point lead over Car-
ter in the latest Associated Press-NBC
News poll.
AND THE prevailing feeling among
Reagan's political advisers is that
there's no need to run the risk of a,
debate unless it takes place under the
most favorable conditions for Reagan.
That means a guarantee that the in-
cumbent Democratic president would
agree to a one-on-one debate with in-
dependent presidential candidate John
Reagan had his confrontation with
Anderson last Sunday in Baltimore and
the Illinois congresman laced into the
Republican nominee for his stands on
several issues, particularly energy and
ANDERSON IS a debater whose
skills have been honed on the floor of
the House of Representatives. He's
quick and he can be savage.
Having come out of his debate with
Anderson with no apparent lasting
damage, Reagan feels Carter ought to
undergo the same trial by fire.
The public position of the Reagan
camp is that fairness requires that An-
derson get a shot at debating the
president, who turned down the League

of Women Voters' invitation to par-
ticipate in the Baltimore debate.
FOR A WHILE, Reagan felt very
comfortable allied with the non-
partisan league. At first, the
organization talked about placing an
empty chair on the stage to give added
emphasis to Carter's refusal to join the,
debate. But the league got cold feet
about that idea and dropped it.
Then the league announced last
Thursday that it was inviting Carter
and Reagan to a one-on-one debate to be
followed by a three-way debate in
which Anderson would join the other
two presidential candidates.
That proposal was what Carter wan-
ted all along and it infuriated many
Reagan aides. That anger was reflected
in Reagan aid James Baker III's
response to Ruth Hinerfeld, chair-
woman of the league's education fund:
"YOUR SACRIFICE of this principle
of fairness in succumbing to White
House pressure is unseemly and will
not reflect favorably upon the league,"
wrote Baker.
The league issued yesterday an ap-
peal for the three candidates-Carter,
Reagan and Anderson-to settle their
differences so that further debates can
be held between now and Election Day
4 on Nov. 4.
"We publicly call upon the candidates
to give and take and to come to an
agreement," Hinerfeld said in a
statement. "The American people1
should not lose the opportunity to see
and hear their candidates discuss the

BUT WHILE all the talk about fair-
ness sounds good, both Carter and
Reagan put greater weight on the polls.
The Republican candidate was spen-
ding the weekend in Los Angeles
resting and also planned to take a close
look at the latest polling data compiled
by Richard Wirthlin, his chief pollster.
That data will help determine
whether there will be any change in the
Reagan position on debates. It also will
be a key factor in determining where
the former California governor spends
his campaign time in October.
schedule has been left very loose for the
last three weeks in October in order to
give him the flexibility to campaign in
areas where it can do the most good.

Even before examining the polling
data, it's a good bet that Ohio, Illinois,
New York, and Pennsylvania will see a
lot of Reagan as the autumn leaves turn
gold in October.
Those are obvious states to conce
trate his effort in this close election. Bu
there also will be questions such as
whether Carter really is threatening
Reagan's hold on California's 45 elec-
toral votes, and how realistic is the
prospect of cutting into Carter's
Southern strength.
There also is the expectation, that
many democrats, unhappy with Car-
ter's handling of the economy or other
issues, and who are saying they wil
vote for Reagan of Anderson, wil
revert to their traditional party loyalty
when it gets closer to Election Day.
