Secretary James C Hag erty told newsmen SAME EilUors Nute This Is the flrnt in scriis ul weekly articles by the illrecllir of tlie Princeton Research Service and the United Slates By KENNETH FINK Princeton Research Service PRINCETON majority of the nations voters questioned by United Stales Poll staff re porters in a survey just com pleted say they would vote for Dwighl D Eisenhower if he were running for president on Ihc Re publican ticket against Sen Es tcs Kefauver on the Democratic ticket Nearly two out of every five say they would vote for Sen Ke fauver 3 to 2 Edge In other words at the present time the nations voters prefer Eisenhower over Kefauver by a margin of exactly three to two When United States Poll staff reporters using the same meth ods that enabled the Poll to pre dict the results of the 1954 na tionwide Congressional elections within threefourths of one per cent put the following question to a representative crosssection of the nations voters Suppose the presidential elections were being held today If President Eisenhower was the Republican candidate and Sen Estes Kefauver was the Democratic candidate which one would you like to win The vote was NATIONWIDE Eisenhower 57 Kefauver 38 Undecided 5 A similar trial heat survey be tween Kefauver and Eisenhower was reported by the United States Poll in March 1955 At that time the vote divided as follows EISENHOWERKEFAUVER Reported on March 17 1955 E isenhower 57 36 Undecided 7 In the 1952 presidential elec tions Eisenhower received per cent of the two party vote Stevenson per cent In other words if the presi dential elections were being held today Eisenhower would prpba bly run as well against Kefauver as he did in 1952 against Steven not better Current Sentiment It must be understood that Thursdays Poll findings reflect only current sentiment and that opinion may change between now and next November Analysis of Thursdays vote indicates that Eisenhowers margin over Ke fauver comes from the Presidents popularity with independent and GOP voters as well as his ability to attract Democratic voters For instance one out of every four Democrats across the nation at the present time says he would vote for Eisenhower whereas only 2 in each 100 Republicans say they would vote for Kefauver At the same time independents favor Eisenhower over Kefauver by a margin of better than two to one Here are the results by political party affiliation DEMOCRATS ONLY Eisenhower Kefauver 70 5 REPUBLICANS ONLY Eisenhower 96 Kefauver 2 Undecided 2 INDEPENDENTS ONLY Eisenhower 65 Kefauver 28
