Ford runs better than Reagan in South 26%-21% and 24%-33% in the West 30% of Ford and Reagan supporters will defect to Carter if their candidate doesn't receive nomination. Republican unity drive could stop possible defections. Ford leads Reagan 53%-32% among Republicans Ford considered more honest and electable; his best issues are improved economy and that he is less warlike. Reagan viewed as new figure who will clean up welfare, reduce size of government and work for equality with USSR . 50% feel it's a mistake to desert incumbent; 30% disagree.
