strong Stevenson tide running against him in the first Babson poll tabulations With approximately 25 per ccnl this years Babsonpoll survey completed a projection of poll figures to a nationalvote level would show Ike back in the lead on a popularvote by a very slim margin Biggest pick ups by the President since last weeks report were in the middle Atlantic slates and in the indus trial Midwest Some gains were noted also in the farm possibly a result of the Eisen hower trip into that area it is in Ihe farm region and in the South that the Babson survey shows Ikes biggest drop from the vole lotals he achieved in 1952 Fortunately for Ihc GOP nomi nee however he can afford pop ularvole losses in these areas without drastic inroads being made into his electoralvote pos sibilities Of the four Southern states taken by the President in 1952 this weeks Babsonpoll shows Ste venson with a comfortable lead in two Tennessee and Texas and a slight advantage in one other Eisenhower is doubtful ing to a thin majority in Florida All other Southern states are safely in the Stevenson column Most of the farm states were taken by Ike in 1952 by wide mar gins It does not appear today thai he will take any of them by the sixtofour ratio of four years ago However he still maintains a rather substantial advantage in Kansas Nebraska North Da kota The Ike lead in Iowa and Min nesota is so small that both of those states must today be con Dcspite the narrowness of Ei senhowers popularvote lead tho Babson survey shows that his electoralvote count would be proportionately greater if the election were held today Thats because of 1 tie wasting of vast numbers of Stevensoa votes ;
