Description : Abstract
Meg Vaillancourt reports that Michael Dukakis (Democratic US Presidential candidate) is the frontrunner among the Democratic presidential candidates after faring well in the Super Tuesday primary elections. Vaillancourt notes that Dukakis did well in the Southern states because he had money to travel and to buy advertising time. Vaillancourt notes that Jesse Jackson (Democratic US Presidential candidate) won the African American vote and votes from southern whites. Vaillancourt discusses the performances of Democratic candidates Al Gore, Dick Gephardt, and Paul Simon. She notes that Gore did better than analysts had predicted. Vaillancourt analyzes the candidates' chances in the upcoming Illinois primary election. Vaillancourt's report includes footage of Dukakis campaigning, footage of Dukakis speaking to the media and footage from a Dukakis campaign advertisement. Vaillancourt's report is also accompanied by footage of Jackson campaigning, by footage of Gore campaigning and by footage of Gephardt and Simon. Vaillancourt's report features footage from a Gephardt campaign advertisement and footage of Dukakis with Walter Mondale (1984 Democratic US Presidential candidate).
