An October 1960 poll of FJC night students, reported in the October 17, 1960 issue of NiteTimes, showed that Richard Nixon had a slight edge over John F. Kennedy in the Presidential election. Out of 404 people questioned, 212 selected Nixon and Lodge, and 186, Kennedy and Johnson. The poll disclosed that foreign students leaned more toward Kennedy, with older students leaning toward Nixon-Lodge. The majority of faculty members interviewed favored the Democrats. Alvin the Chipmunk and Alfred E. Neuman each received one vote. A poll taken at the same time of Fullerton Union High School students found a pro-Nixon stronghold, with the Vice-President leading four to one.
