Campaign Roundup (4)

Bankers may be studying the presidential polls harder than anyone else this week, weighing Anderson's chances to garner at least 5 percent of the vote in November.

The Anderson campaign expects to give word in the next several days, according to a press aide, on its success in borrowing against its prospects for attaining the 5 percent showing in the general election.

When the Federal Elections Commission ruled Sept. 4 that Anderson would be eligible for some government campaign reimbursement if he reached the 5 percent threshold, the candidate's staff already had been talking with bankers for several weeks.

Five percent of the vote would earn Anderson around $3.1 million in federal money; 15 percent would win him about $10.5 million.
