Not too tough after the last 2—N.S.C. briefing—meeting with speechwriters—gave them an idea for Sat. radio—it worked out pretty good. Dick Wirthlin came in with a poll taken before my speech. I’ve gained on job approval with regard to the economy. But the drumbeat of anti-defense propaganda has reduced my rating on foreign affairs. I’ll be interested to see how that holds for a poll after the speech. Did a press availability in the press room. It went well—so the press on T.V. almost ignored it entirely. Meeting to discuss Wmsburg Summit. Then a pleasant lunch in the Oval office George B., George S. & Punch Sulzberger. The T.V. Q&A with high school kids—I really enjoy that. Gov. Lamar Alexander (Tenn.) came to Wash. just to tell me—if I run he wants to help. Met with Y. Repubs. ldrship. Nice group of young people. An hour meeting with Geo. S. just the 2 of us to talk about our quiet diplomacy efforts with Dobrynin. We may get those Pentacostalists out of the embassy in Moscow yet.
