This Day In Daily History

Polls show dead heat just six days before election

October 29, 1992 — Bill Clinton alternatively poked and
praised Ross Perot yesterday, hoping to siphon off support in a
race for the White House growing closer by the day.

Perot mapped plans for a campaign-ending series of rallies to
supplement the most expensive television advertising effort in
American history.

Clinton’s lead has shrunk in recent days as Perot has
gained in the polls. The latest surveys pointed to a tightening
race, although they differed on how tight. A CNN-USA Today survey
of 1,217 likely voters showed Clinton at 40 percent, George H. W.
Bush at 38 percent and Perot at 16 percent. With a margin of error
of 3 percentage points, that added up to a dead heat.
