J., Nov. 3.—The soldier vote may be the deciding factor in many states where poll samplings show a nearly even division of sentiment for Roosevelt and Dewey. The effect of this soldier balloting can be seen bv taking Massachusetts as an example. In Massachusetts, with a total of 2,275,000 f I igible civilian voters in this election, the Associated Press estimates a turn- 7. On the basis of interviews with a cross-section cf this qivilian pop- GALI UP ulation, tlje Institute's semi-final i report last week showed 50 per rent for Roosevelt In Massarhu- votes, setts, 50 per cent for Dewey, The state will have, in arldi-tion to the civilian vote, a servicemen's vote estimated at 150,000. If these 150,000 servicemen should divide 70 per cent for Roosevelt, 30 per cent for Dewey, the Roosevelt figure for Massachusetts would be increased by nearly 1.5 per cent. If the soldier vote divides 60-10, it will give Roosevelt an increase of a little over one-half of I per cent. Similarly, in a state where Dewey happens to lead ta itll 51 or 52 per cent of the civilian v~tes, a heavily Democratic soldier vote could operate to reduce the Republican figure to something even closer to the 50-50 line, and make the election a toss-up in that state. Political observers will pay particularly close attention to the soldier vote in a group of states where poll results are now showing an equa. di7. ision of civilian popular , velt, and 9 PIVOTAL STATES f( ivilian Voters Only) Electoral Votes FOR Dewey ll Kentucky ... 47% 8 Conn........ .52 48 8 Maryland .... . .51 49 16 Mass......... ..
