CAMPAIGN ’88 : Voters Wary in Poll

<i> United Press International</i>

A survey of 1,000 American adults shows that eight out of 10 believe that the presidential candidates are insincere and nearly half said they would rather watch prime time TV than pay attention to the election, Parents magazine reported Monday.

Of those polled, 79% said they believed that both candidates “are just saying what they think the voters want to hear,” and only 10% said they believe that the presidential hopefuls are honest, the magazine reported in its November issue.

In addition, 49% expressed cynicism about the election process, saying they did not believe that the results of the presidential primary represented the “will of the people.” But 65% of the adults polled said they believe that the outcome of the election will make a difference to the future of the country.
