HOME EDITION VOL LVII1 Associated Press and United Press Full Lease Wires Five a Copy MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 1952 This Taper CoiulsU at Two Ono No Women Hold Key Role in Political Race Smaller Percentage Usually Cast Ballot By ARCHIBALD M CROSSLEY Director The CROSSLEY POLL In those states whose electoral voles will be decided in November by close margins the degree to which women voters participate in the elections quite possibly could have an important bearing upon the result The poll indicates that a small majority of all males who express a preference for one of the two candidates favors Stevenson 51 but that on the other hand a small majority of all females who express a preference favor Eisen hower When those likely not to vote are taken out of these the probable voters line up like this Preferences and Leanings of Probable Voters and Stevenson Males Females Eisenhower 516 547 Stevenson v 484 453 These differences are not large and are subject to the deviations of samples of the population But there is a very general tendency among different groups of people for women to show a somewhat greater preference than men for Eisenhower the tendency being less marked among the younger women than among others In close slate contest therefore the extent to which women and par ticularly those of middle and other age groups take part in the elec tion might affect the outcome It usually happens that the vot ing ratio for women is lower than thai for men Through a series of voting interest questions the poll shows that according to present indications this year is no excep tion Only 53 per cent of the fe males are likely to vote compared with GO per cent of the males Along with the lower voting in terest among women goes greater Indecision to candidate choice The percentages given at the beginning of this article in cluded both the decided and the undecided are now leaning one way or the other Actually for only those who had reached a de cision and who were likely to vote this was the result excluding in each case a fraction of one per cent for minor Males Eisenhower 46 Stevenson 42 Undecided 12 39 15 BULLETIN WASHINGTON Iff Reports
