By JANET RAE
A sense of forboding dominated a
Center for Afroamerican and African
Studies "day-after" panel discussion on
the landslide victory of Ronald Reagan.
"I hope the vote didn't give Reagan
the mandate to do whatever he thinks is
right to do," said Natural Resources
Associate Prof. Bunyan Bryant.
YPSILANTI MAYOR George Good-
man, who is also director of the Univer-
sity Opportunity Program, agreed,
saying that "it is somewhat scary for
me" that Reagan might be inclined to
believe that all those who voted for him
also support all his positions.
Goodman said it is therefore vital
that citizens remain vocal about their
political beliefs.
"If we are silent, it will be inherently
taken as a sign of support," Goodman
said.
THE PANEL, speaking on the topic
"The National Presidential Elections,
1980: The Day After," consisted of
Goodman, Bryant, and Janice O'Neal,
a graduate student research assistant.
Goodman, who has predicted that
Carter."was going to win as he tripped
across the finish line," feels that the
president's re-election drive "lacked a
sense of campaign."
"You don't have to go out and slap
people like he (Carter) did," he said.
Goodman also cited a lack in presen-
tation ability. "I think his concession
speech was one of the better speeches

Loell Prize by the Modern Language

sity Press.

he's given in this entire campaign," he
noted.
BRYANT analyzed the Carter loss in
a historical perspective. He cited the
existence of a New Deal coalition under
which "everyone was getting
something." According to Bryant, it
was this coalition which succeeded in
putting Carter into office in 1976.
But, he claims, the imbalance of the
high price of energy effectively began
to break this coalition apart.
"Everybody wasn't getting something
... so the white ethnics deserted that
coalition and went for Reagan," he
said.
Bryant also said Carter tried in vain
to pull the New Deal coalition together
again by battling the energy problem as

the "moral equivalent of war" in the
hopes that such an action would
rejuvenate the system much as World
War II did.
O'Neal cited Carter's campaign
strategy as the major reason for his
downfall. She said that his method of
"portraying Reagan as a warmonger
with antiquated simple answers and as
a racist who would divide the country
backfired."

work out a way in which to cooperate in
any fashion that might help our
national interest and help in getting the
hostages home."
CARTER, WHO summoned reporters'
to the Oval Office to discuss his lan-
dslide loss in Tuesday's election,
stressed that he will be president until
Reagan's inauguration.
Carter said he does not think Reagan
"would materially change theposture.
we are maintaining" toWard the
Iranian"situation.
Carter reiterated that "we will not do

anything that would violate the honor
and integrity of our country."
He said the hostage crisis obviously
was a factor in Reagan's trium-
ph-especially since the election coin-
cided with the first anniversary of the
takeover of the U.S., Embassy in
Tehran and. the seizure of the 52
Americans still in captivity.
"IT'S IMPORTANT for the world to
realize, and the American public to
realize, that I'll be the president for the
next 2%months," Carter added.
-Iranian Prime Minister Mohammad
Ali Rajai said yesterday Reagan's elec-
tion made no difference to Iran but
another senior official said it now would
t'ake longer for the 52 American
hostages to be released.I

(Continued from Page 1)
While Reagan planned for the future,
his top strategist explained how the
former actor and California governor
swept to victory.
"We felt that if this election did come
down to the issue of the economic
cluster, if people asked themselves if'
there was better hope to reduce in-
flation with a Reagan presidency, we
would win it, and that's exactly what
happened in the last four or five days of
this campaign," said Reagan's pollster,
Richard Wirthlin.
HE SAID that according to his polls,
the possible return of the American
hostages from Iran had no significant
effect on the election outcome.
Wirthlin said Reagan would have won
the election even if he had not debated
President Carter last week in
Cleveland. The debate did give Reagan
a strong push, Wirthlin said, but victory
was there even earlier.
He said the debate convinced viewers
that Reagan is not a "dangerous
radical" as he had been portrayed.
As the nationwide tally in a low-
turnout election neared completion, the
dimensions of the Reagan lan-

dslide-and mandate-were in the
numbers.
WITH 99 percent of the precincts
counted, Reagan had 43 million votes,
or 51 percent; Carter 34.7 million, or 41
percent; independent John Anderson
5.5 million or 7 percent, and Libertarian
Ed Clark one percent.
That translated to 483 electoral votes
for Reagan, who led for 6 in Arkansas,
the only state still too close to call. Car-
ter had only 49. Reagan needed only 270
electoral votes to win.
In a related political development,
Senate Republican Leader' Howard
Baker said yesterday that the Senate,
with its newly formed Republican
majority, will likely give its stamp of
approval to President-elect Reagan's
major legislative programs.
"There'll be a closer working
relationship between the White House
and the Congress-and especially the
Senate-than over the last four years,"
Baker said at a news conference.
The Senate could begin working on
Reagan initiatives-including the deep
tax cut that forms the centerpiece of his
domestic program-shortly after his
inauguration in January, Baker said.
