(Studio) Richard Nixon confident of winning. Says he'll receive 3-5 million vote maj. To appear in 2 hour national telethon.
REPORTER: Frank Reynolds

(No Location Given) Nixon will either be President-elect or rejected for last time in political career. Nixon campaign carefully planned. Several shots of Nixon shown with his political slogans. [NIXON - says rather than more on welfare, more should be on payrolls. Time for new leadership when 4th rate power like North Korea seizes American ship. American flag won't be doormat for anyone. Nothing wrong with American that good election won't cure.] Slogan technique refined. Middle-class white American is his goal. Oratory mostly uninspiring. His rallies described. No excitement or passion.
