(Studio) Political indications show Senator George McGovern ahead of Senator Hubert Humphrey in California. California Field Poll shows McGovern with 46%, Humphrey with 26%. and Wallace with 8%. McGovern cautions against overconfidence; Humphrey works furiously.
REPORTER: John Chancellor

(San Francisco, California) McGovern leads among all kinds of voters (black, white, Chicano, men, women, union, nonunion, north and south) except senior citizens. McGovern campaigns to elderly in hospital. [MCGOVERN - urges supporters not to let down in efforts or poll will be disproven.] (San Jose, California) Crowds for McGovern are tumultuous, polls encouraging.
REPORTER: Jack Perkins

(San Francisco, California) Senator Humphrey relies on television in California, a media state. Free television because he hasn't much money. Humphrey admits he's behind, but not as far back as polls show. [HUMPHREY - thinks polls inaccurate.] Humphrey attends labor rallies, campaigning to those who used to support him in force but are now lukewarm.
