Description : Abstract
Meg Vaillancourt reports that Jesse Jackson (Democratic US Presidential candidate) defeated Michael Dukakis (Democratic US Presidential candidate) in the Michigan caucuses. Vaillancourt notes that Jackson's performance exceeded the expectations of political analysts and has led them to consider the possibility of Jackson winning the Democratic nomination. Vaillancourt adds that some analysts are questioning the state of the Dukakis campaign. Vaillancourt's report includes footage from interviews with Robert Kuttner (author of The Life of the Party) and Leslie Dach (Dukakis campaign). Kuttner says that Jackson appeals to working class voters. Dach defends the Dukakis campaign and adds that Dukakis has a strong base of support. Vaillancourt notes that the Democratic establishment would be shaken by a Jackson victory. Vaillancourt's report includes footage from an interview with Jeffrey Garin (Democratic Party pollster). Vaillancourt reports that Dukakis and Jackson are competing for delegates to the Democratic convention. Vaillancourt's report includes footage from the MacNeil Lehrer Newshour of Charlene Drew Jarvis (delegate to the Democratic convention) and footage of Jackson and Dukakis campaigning.
