CLINTON WINS ARA SERVICES' NATIONAL PRESIDENTIAL POLL

 CLINTON WINS ARA SERVICES' NATIONAL PRESIDENTIAL POLL
 PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- If the nation's voters reflect


the sentiments of the 42,104 Americans who participated in ARA Services' fourth consecutive, non-partisan preview election poll, Gov. Bill Clinton will win the presidential election on Nov. 3.
 Conducted as a public service effort to increase voter interest and participation, the ARA preview election has accurately predicted the winner of each presidential election since 1980.
 Participants in the poll, reflecting the diversity of ARA's customer and employee base, included factory workers, bankers, college professors and students, and healthcare professionals. The results of the Oct. 12 through Oct. 16 poll gave Clinton a winning total of 17,009 or 40 percent of votes cast. President George Bush received a total of 14,121 or 34 percent of the votes; Ross Perot garnered 5,616 or 13 percent.
 A total of 4,168 voters or 10 percent of those polled were undecided while the "Other" category drew 1,190 or 3 percent of the responses made in the survey.
 Clinton was the choice in each of four voting blocks: business and industry; colleges and universities; hospitals and medical centers; and elementary and high schools as follows below.
 In ARA's 1988 preview election, Bush won by 48 percent over Gov. Michael Dukakis who received 39 percent of the votes cast. The 1984 poll also accurately predicted President Ronald Reagan's landslide victory over Walter Mondale.
 ARA Services is a privately held international diversified service management company with nearly $5 billion in annual sales. Based in Philadelphia, ARA employs 120,000 people worldwide and provides quality services for industry, institutions, government, and the general public including food and leisure, uniform rental and maintenance, periodical distribution, healthcare and childcare.
