E-8 A!;cn Evening Tnr si 'ai.;i ; n.;..v. ;,•....„..; Positive reaction to Dem convention T.OM in tlio furor oxer tho dropping of Senator Thomas Kaplettm from the ticket was the fad that hy :v2 ::,s per c-.'iil a majority of the American people had a liiehly posiTve rcaction to Hie Democratic National Coin on! ion held !n early July. The main reasons for the favorable impression among the public \\-ere the reforms which allowed tor ,i much {.Tenter representation of delegates who were \onns:. black or Spanish speakm:;. and women. This issue of sett in;; quotas on these groups in order to insure adequate representation from segments of the population who iiii<:li! Otherwise ;ioi )>,> named delegates lias surfaced in the debate at the Ucpuhhe.m convention winch will convene this Mondav in Miami licaeh. Here arc some hiijlilirjiis ol a special Harris Survey winch tested reaction In ihe Democratic convenlion in retrospect aftc- the Kauletou affair had been concluded: — The most widely remembered pads- of !,,c Democratic conclave were 'lie. openness of (lie con\eii;ioa, the way Chairman l.awrcti''.' 0 ' H r i e n handled the dele g a t e s . (he orderlv behavior of the new people who were aitc-iding their .first, convention. Sen. MeCovern's choice of Kagleton. and the representation of the young, minorities, and women. All of t h e s o aspects of the Democratic convention were followed and recalled hy between 5fl and 70 per cent of the electorate. — Least well recalled by the public was Senator M c G o v e r n ' s acceptance speech, delivered in the wee hours of Ihe morning. No more than 38 per cent of the voters had any exposure to it. —Although the reaction to the convention was generally positive, a major exception was the unseating of Mayor Daley and his Chicago delegation. P.y -4f> - :!!) per cent. v o t e r s reacted ngatively to this move. — Out (•!' :'() oilier in;ijor happinings al the Democratic convention, only two others were received unfavorably by the public. both closely related to each other: by 55-I57 per cent, a majority felt that the Democrats were wrong not to oppose school busing to achieve racial balance and. by 57-liO per cent, a majority also tended to sympathi/e with Gov. George Wallace in his stand that lie could not support Mi-Govern running on the Democratic platform. After the Alabama Governor bowed out of the race for 1H72, liis Mipporlers went roughly 2 - to - 1 for President Nixon rather than lor Senator lUcGovcru. On August •_'nd and 3rd. a cross section of likely voters was asked: ''Did you happen to >ee or hear about (1,'KAD ITKM O\ LIST) at Ihe Democratic convention in Miami, or didn't you see m- hear about that"'' and (KIM, lv\Cll ITKM "S \\VllK.\lili")" Were you favirabh ur unfavorably inii.iv-M'd li.v th.,! develop- IV'h.n ioj of ne\v delegatcv. ,vi (,, •••(•, y Targe number noniiii.i!:',! for \ ice proideii! .* !! -l.i II Appointment oi woman chairman of l>emo <rali ( Pariv :,; ;.) r, 9 A oie ID v.'il C.'ili fi'i-nia McfJovrrn dele gation ;>.i ,)7 nil 1.4 Support of McGourn by opponents after nomination .'D '/•! )'/ n Stand by linv \Vallace could not support MeGovern runnir.s: on Pom. platform .>:! .-,',' ;)c, 7 Vole not lo si\'il Mayor Daley anil In.s dele- Mr(,'o\(.| n pi uic'-ier (iii'h'oiii.iiion in hotel lohliy K :i7 I!:! |n \ o 1 " not ;« oppose school bi^ui!: io achiev e racial balance .MI ;\~; ;•>;; s Dcitale <rii Memo- cralic plaltorm in -is ,ti r; Vole tin! to back legali/ed abortion il -l:. -I!
