Campuses reflect nationwi

by Shelley Morrison
and Mona Qureshi
Daily Staff Reporters
The voice of college students
thundered through polling booths
nationwide yesterday as the large
number of student votes helped
carry presidential candidate Bill
Clinton-over the top.
"It felt damn good to pull that
Democratic lever to the right and
feel the whole machine click," said
University of Wisconsin-Madison
senior Hans Johnson. "It was like
changing the whole country."
University newspaper polls na-
tionwide reflected widespread sup-
port for Clinton.
In a poll conducted by the
student newspaper at the University
of Pennsylvania, about 70 percent of
students at seven Ivy League
Schools said they were registered to
Of those polled, 31.6 percent
were registered as Democrats, 12.6
percent as Republicans and 24.6 per-
cent as Independents.
Harvard University sophomore
Jim Murray said he voted for
Clinton because the-candidate pro-

vided an "attractive alternative" to
"Four years ago, the Democratic
party didn't have it together. This
year they made a concerted effort to
put together a strong platform,"
Murray said.
In a poll by the Michigan State
University student newspaper, 36.9
percent of the students identified
themselves as Democratic voters.
The poll indicated 35.1 percent of
students interviewed said they were
Republican voters, and 24.4 percent
said they voted for Independent
A similar 1988 poll revealed that
40.9 percent of students said they
were Republican, 32.5 percent
Democratic and 23 percent
"We were tired of this 12-year
Republican reign and we just wanted
to get (Bush) out of the White
House. He didn't show us anything
in the last four years that showed us
he had a good head," said Schawana
Hence, an MSU sophomore.
Poll results taken by a student
newspaper at Northwestern
University (NU) noted a 13 percent

increase in registered voters from
1988, rising from 80 percent to 93
percent of the student body.
At NU, Clinton captured 62 per-
cent of the student vote, Bush fin-
ished with 20 percent and Perot
garnered 5 percent.
"The results are indicative of the
mood on this campus - in this
country," said Tom Lupfer, presi-
dent of NU Students for Clinton.
"The student vote all over is
strongly pro-Clinton, because he is
the one who has talked to our needs
and seems concerned about the fu-
ture," Lupfer said.
Florida State University senior
Bruce Rosenbaum said he voted for
Clinton because of his affiliation
with the Democratic party. "I just
don't feel we can afford to have
anymore conservative appointments
to the Supreme Court or district
courts," he said. "They're taking all
our rights away."
However, members of the
College Republican National
Committee (CRNC) said they feel
college campuses are not as pro-
Clinton as many believe.
"Most people see college cam-

de vote
puses as liberal, and that's just ne
the case," said George Fondren,
political director for the CRNC.
"People want to know more, and are
changing their minds."
Fondren said Republican mem-
bership has increased from 10,000 to
20,000 in the past decade at more
than 1,000 American universities.
University of Wisconsin-
Madison senior Cristina Streckert
said she voted for Bush because of
his high moral character.
"Bush has moral integrity. I be.
lieve he respects family morals
more," Streckert said.
Contrary to the popular Ivy
League School trend, Yale
University sophomore Justin King
said he supported Bush.
"I'm a bit cynical about the next
four years. People are so over-:
whelmed with change, they don't re-
alize what Clinton has in store for
them," he said.
"It's hard to believe Bush is 4c:
tually on his way out. He has beefi
lingering as a bad taste in oi
mouths for 12 years," said Scott
Curry, a Harvard University
