Many heard of projected winner before voting

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON - More than one
voter in four reported hearing the
winner of the 1984 presidential elec-
tion projected by the news media
before casting a ballot-even when
projections had not been announced,
the Census Bureau said yesterday.
The bureau also announced that
women outvoted men for the first time
in 1984 and there was a striking in-
crease in the rate of young black voter

participation in the election.
Nationwide, 25.4 percent of the
voters surveyed told the Census
Bureau that before they went to the
polls they had heard news
organizations project that Ronald
Reagan would be re-elected as
BUT THE BUREAU went on to ask
the time of day the indidviduals had
voted, and the respondents' answers
to this question cast doubts on the

notion that people had actually heard
projections of the winner, as opposed
to reports of the anticipated victor.
"Large numbers of voters who
reported having heard a media
projection of the winner in the
presidential election also reported
having voted before such projections
were aired in their areas," the bureau
said in its study titled "Voting and
Registration in the Election of
November 1984."
A projection is a report stating that,
based on vote totals available at cer-
tain time, a particular candidate is
expected to win an election. It differs

from a simple report of who is leading
based on returns, but which stops
short of declaring a likely winner.
Political figures long have been
critical of projections of winners in
elections, contending that reporting
an imminent victory before polls are
closed can influence voting decisions
of people who have not yet cast their
The new report by the agency also
said overall voter turnout was up to 60
percent of registered voters in 1984, a
1 percent increase that "clearly in-
dicates a break in the long downward

The increase in voter turnout
among women came from both older
and younger women, the survey said.
Of the 5.2 million increase in women
voters between 1980 and 1984, 3.1
million were women 18 to 44 years old,
while 2.1 million were women 45 years
and over.
"Particularly striking gains were
made in registration and voting bet-
ween 1980 and 1984 for blacks 18 to 24
years old," the survey said. The
registration for the group increased
from 41 percent to 54 percent while
voter turnout increased from 30 per-
cent to 41 percent.

"Much of this increase is undoub-
tedly attributable to the vigorous
registration drive targeted at this
group prior to the 1984 election," Cen-
sus said. "That the increase in.
registration was not just a listing of,
names on registration rolls is ink.

In 1984, college graduates were
nearly twice as likely to have voted*

percent). Persons with four years of.
high school had a 59 percent turnout

Campus garbage has overwhelmed grounds
crews in recent weeks due to a shortage of clean-
up personnel, according to Doug Fasing, manager
of the University's Grounds Department.
"We just don't have the staff. We are fully
aware that the campus is in bad shape," said
Fasing, who added that "places like the C.C. Little
bus stop have to be cleaned up three times a day."

FASING attributes the problem to large sums of
money that the University spent for snow
removal, decreasing the funds available for gar-
bage pick-up. Money for the two clean-up tasks
comes from the same budget allocation, he said,
but he was unable to provide exact figures.
Because of the funding problems, only five
workers are currently working on clearing up cen-
tral campus.
This week's spring temperatures have brought
students out in large groups, concentrating much
of the trash on the Diag, a popular spot for tanning
and people-watching.

Michael Zegev, an LSA freshman, attributes the

Dean Baker, president of Rackham
Student Government and one of the
estimated 90 University students who

he pleaded not guilty Monday because

into a building to prevent a greater
harm from occurring," Baker said
referring to what he sees as an in-

engineering representative who ran
on the Meadow Party ticket, said he
went into the MSA Student
Organization File, in search of the
form at the request of a constituent.
Frenkel made a copy of the Marxist
group form, he said, and gave it to the
constituent. He said that a Michigan
Review reporter ultimately ended up
with a copy of the form. The Review is
another group that Faigel may sue.
Eric Shapiro, president of SPOCK
(Students Proud of Campus

Knowledge), the group responsible
for printing the Marxist posters, said
that Muenchow "did not want a part
of it." "I paid for the posters out of my
own pocket," Shapiro said.
Jen Faigel, former presidential
candidate for the Student Rights Par-
ty, said, "I had nothing to do with it
(the resolution). "It's important for
MSA to not allow this type of thing, to
go on."
Also last night, MSA recognized
four new student organizations:
Students Concerned about University

Societ, Coalition Against Red Baiting,
and Students Against McCarthyism.
