President Reagan’s planned visit to a German military cemetery next month is opposed by 51% of the people surveyed in a national ABC News-Washington Post poll conducted Monday and released Tuesday.

The Poll of 1,119 persons across the country, selected randomly and interviewed by telephone Monday night, found that 51% disapproved of Reagan’s plan to visit the Bitburg cemetery, where members of Hitler’s SS elite guard are buried. Thirty-nine percent approved of the visit and the rest had no opinion.
