Results of the latest trial heat of voter preference show Sen John Ken nedy of Massachusetts has crept ahead of Vice President Nixon This is the way the Princeton Research Service sees it at this time Kennedy 514 Nixon 479 Undecided 7 Excluding the undecided vote the figures become Kennedy 518 Nixon 482 It must be kept in mind that all public opinion samplings are subject to a margin of error of approximately four per cent when the findings are at or very near the 50 per cent mark the way they aretoday 518 per cent for Kennedy 482 per cent for Nixon P RIN CETON RESEARCH Service experience over the years with political predictions does however indicate that the man with a lead of four per cent or better normally wins It must also be understood that todays poll findings reflect only current opinion and that much can happen between now and election day should the two men Kennedy and Nixon get the presidential nominations from their respective political parties Five weeks ago findings on the same question showed the following Nixon 50 per cent Kennedy 494 per cent Undecided 06 per cent In other words over the past five weeks sentiment for Nixon has dropped 21 per cent that for Kennedy has edged for ward 20 per cent and the Un decided has risen 01 per cent When todays vote is stacked up alongside the findings report ed in three previous surveys with the undecided vote ex cluded the trend looks like this Nixon Kennedy Oct 29 1960 522 478 Jan 281960 510 490 March 17 1960 503 497 TODAY 482 518 From the above it can be seen that over the past six months sentiment for Nixonhas been gradually lessening while that for Kennedy has just as gradual ly been rising TODAYS SPLIT in sentiment among Democrats Republicans and independents is worthy of particular mention For in stance 15 out of every 100 Dem ocrats talked to say they favor Nixon whereas only 10 out of each 100 Republicans talked to say they prefer Kennedy to Nixon At the same time Nixon holds a very slim edge over Ken nedy among rank and file in dependent voters However since those who con sider themselves Democrats out number those who consider themselves Republicans by just about a 4 to 3 margin 43 per cent of all eligible voters today consider themselves Democrats Republicans 32 per cent and in dependents 25 per todays vote still puts Kennedy ahead in the overall picture Heres how Democrats
