(Studio) Report on "CBS-New York Times" poll with regard to IN.
REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(Studio) IN voters like Reagan's stand on issues: size of government, defense spending, tax reform, welfare and detente. Poll shows that foreign policy hurting administration and Secretary of State Henry Kissinger could become political liability to President 1/2 of IN Republicans think Kissinger made too many concessions. Reagan carries conservative Republicans and slightly trails Ford with moderates. Wealthy Republicans for Reagan 2 1/2-1. In IN Reagan not seen as spoiler. Carter leads in IN. 2 of 3 Democrats approve Senator Hubert H. Humphrey's decision not to enter race.
