Carter Gained in Poll

A Gallup poll showed that Jimmy Carter’s performance in the second presidential debate had strengthened his lead. Prior to the debate his lead over Ford had shrunk to 47%-45%, but after the debate it had climbed to 50%-40%. Carter was back home in Plains, Georgia preparing for the third debate after a trip to the family dentist in nearby Americus.
