Soviet Union

The ouster of Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev will weaken relations with the United States, according to 90 percent of callers to SUNDIAL. Out of 531 callers, 483 voiced that opinion, and only 48 (9 percent) disagreed.

Of 518 callers, 305 (nearly 59 percent) said the developments in the Soviet Union will mean a return to the Cold War, and 213 (41 percent) disagreed.

Sixty-four percent of the callers, or 334 of 518, said the coup will lead to civil war in that nation, and 184 (35 percent) disagreed.

Of 518 callers, 274, or nearly 53 percent, said major changes will be coming in Eastern Europe, and 244 (47 percent) disagreed.

More than 74 percent of 515 callers, or 383 in all, said they foresee major changes in Soviet immigration policy, and 132 callers, or 25 percent, said they do not.

The Evening Sun wants to know what actions you think the United States should take in response to the Soviet crisis.

Let us know your view by calling SUNDIAL, the free telephone information service of the Baltimore Sun, at 783-1800 (or 268-7736 in Anne Arundel County) before midnight tonight. Enter category 4600 and await instructions from the announcer. Results of our telephone survey will appear in tomorrow's Evening Sun. "It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
