(Studio) Gallup poll shows findings contradictory to earlier Harris poll, re: Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan and campaign `76, especially with regard to Hubert Humphrey. Both Ford and Reagan ahead of Humphrey, according to Gallup.
REPORTER: Walter Cronkite
(DC) Errors in polls, plus Ford's trip to China could cause public to shift at this time. Publicity affects polls. Reagan did well following announcement of candidacy. Ford's domination of news, especially broadcast news, noted. Humphrey called silent candidate, ranking high in polls. Polls to be more important later.
