Gallup Poll Finds 46% Opposed, 38% in Favor of NAFTA

<i> Special to The Times</i>

The public is leaning against the North American Free Trade Agreement, with only 38% in favor and 46% opposed, a Gallup Poll found last week. The remaining 16% said they had no opinion.

Among those who feel intensely about the issue, opinion against NAFTA is lopsided; only 10% strongly support it, and 20% are strongly opposed. Strong supporters of former presidential candidate Ross Perot, representing about one in six Americans, are opposed by a 63%-26% margin.
