  • Description

    Public opinion polls throughout California ware on Tuesday (6 June) forecasting that Senator George McGovern would easily win the California Democratic Primay -- the most crucial vote remaining before the Democratic Party Convention at Maimi Beach next month.

    As the campaign drew to a close, Senator McGovern was touring Los Angeles - California's largest city. There he visited a construction site in the suburb of Venice.

    SYNOPSIS: Senator George McGovern -- front runner in the Democratic Primary in California -- spent the day before polling in Los Angeles. There he visited a large construction site in the suburb of Venice. The McGovern Campaign organisers were confident voters in the state would give their candidate strong support in the primary -- the most crucial vote before the Democratic Party convention next month. Senator McGovern's visit coincided with the news that he is shortly to visit Houston in Texas.

    As voting began, public opinion polls showed Senator McGovern with a clear lead over his principal opponent, Senator Humphrey. Some polls predict McGovern will win the state by as much as twenty percentage points. While Senator McGovern toured Los Angeles, Senator Humphrey was in San Francisco - having received the support of Los Angeles mayor, Sam Yorty.

    Senator Humphrey's eve-of-voting campaign took him into San Francisco's famous Chinatown area.

    The Senator encountered some demonstrators - but their grievances were mainly of a local nature.

    Senator Humphrey says even if he loses California, he'll remain in the Presidential race.
