Poll Indicates 2 Candidates Running Close Ike Holds Slight Lead Among Voters By ARCHIBALD M CROSSLEY Director The Crossley Poll As the first just before the start of the campaigns the iwo were fairly evenly matchedin popular prefer ence amonglikely voters in No vember A national crosssection of all citizens of voting age entirely re gardless of whether they are likely to vote shows the Democratic can didate currently preferred by 5QO per cent ofthe total the Republi can candidate by 493 per cent and all others by 07 percentr However the poll by means of series of voting interest questions shows that per cent of citizens of proper age are likely to vote If the election were held to daythose who are probable voters would vote according to the poll data as follows Sept 1 Poll Eisenhower 528 Stevenson 466 All Others 06 1948 Vlcctlon Results Dewey 451 Truman 47S All Others 54 To arrive at the above figures men and women across the United States asked to state whether they were for the Demipcratic can didate can didate Among those classified as probable voters a little less than 14 per cent were undecided as to their choiceThese were asked If you had to decide right now which do you think you would choose and the three per cent still unable tomake any choice were classified according to the preferences given by others of similar population types The above results can only be taken to mean that as of a few days prior to the start of the cam paigns the two candidates were in the tierange With two months and the full contest to go many can not say what their final choice will be or whether they will vote at all And since the figures are ob tained from a sample of the pop ulation they must be considered subject to a plus or minus varia tion of approximately three per centage points As elections are decided by the electoral votes of individual states the situation narrows down to cer tain areas where the contest is close In 1948 more than a major ity of the electoral votes were de cided by small margins Says Democrats Alone Not Responsible for Wrongdoing LOS ANGELES Ariki Stevenson went on the offensive Friday with a denial framed in his strongest language that Democrats alone are responsible for corrup tion and misconduct in the federal government Whose fault is it he asked that we get what we de serve in goverriment Arid his answer was It is
