Half of all voters say they are better off today than in 1992, and 55% say they are not worried that they will be able to maintain their standard of living in the next five years. That may be one reason why Bill Clinton has maintained his lead over Bob Dole in a hypothetical match-up. 48% of the registered voters interviewed Oct. 31-Nov. 6 said they would vote for Clinton; 42% picked Dole. Just one out of five voters said they support Ross Perot.
