(Studio) Report on Democrat situation.
REPORTER: John Chancellor

(New Hampshire) Shriver came in last. Harris barely beat Shriver. Bayh finished weak 3rd. Udall wins strong 2nd. Carter won big victory; ran well in all voter categories. [CARTER - glad he came in 1st among progressives.] [UDALL - says made goals of 2nd place and leading progressives.] Udall attracted well-to-do and well-educated. Not as popular with blue-collar workers, Catholics and those of modest incomes. He's liberal front runner. Bayh didn't get support he needed from labor and elderly. [BAYH - says did better than most thought he could.] Harris only got youth vote. [HARRIS - says will take fight to Massachusetts.] [SHRIVER - says will gain daily in Massachusetts.] Carter showed that Southerner can win in North Udall best liberal vote-getter. No dropouts yet.
