President Eisen hower carried it by 15 million in 1956 and Rockefeller was elec ted by more than a halfmillion votes two years ago Despite the handicaps Rocke feller is in position to move in to national leadership HE ESTABLISHED himself as a dominant influence in party affairs last summer when he prevailed upon Nixon to in corporate a large portion of the Rockefeller views in the GOP
