Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - September 21, 1948, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THt NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS HOME EDITION voL uv Associated Press and Press Full LeaM Five Cents a Copy 57 Per Cent of Vote Likely for Dewey By ARCHIBALD M CROSSLEY Director The Crossley Poll The Dewey ticket as of Sept 1 polled 51 per cent or only one per cent more than a majority of total voters Truman Wallace and Thurmond together received 49 per cent The distribution of the national vote by candidates was as follows with a 12 per cent un decided vote prorated DeweyWarren 51 TrumanBarkley 42 WallaceTaylor 5 ThurmondWright 2 A number of factors may op erate to change the distribution of the vote to some degree but so long as the progressive and states rights parties remain in the race it seems unlikely that the regular democratic party can pass republicans in the remaining weeks However it is not impos sible that the New York governor could be elected by less than a majority of the total vote Much still depends however upon the availability of the parties in individual states As this is written the states rights party is represented in a very few states and a considerable number of states have not yet placed the progressive party on the ballot In a few cases party representation may be settled late in the law courts In several states the Tru manBarkley ticket is not on the ballot either by name or by elec tors The Wallace ticket has been kept off the ballot in key states like Illinois Missouri and Ne braska Where a ticket is not spe cifically available on the ballot there may be voluntary write ins the extent of which is almost impossible to predict Somewhat Less It would seem likely that Wai laces vote will be somewhat less than indicated above because the figure gives him credit for all cases of ballot listing still in doubt Thurmond will probably pick up thus cutting into Tru mans vote but Truman may pick up where Wallace is not repre sented Dewey may have some losses and gains perhaps balanc ing out An interesting speculation if the vote remains as indicated in September is the numerical size of the total vote If there are 56 million voters and the final standings should be given as above then Dewey would have a total of million votes Truman Wallace a little less than 3 millions and Thurmond a little more than 1 million Roosevelts greatest majorities were over Dewey by less than 3 millions and over Willkie by about 5 millions The highest vote ever recorded for any president was 275 mil lions fof Roosevelt in 1936 and the highest previous vote for any republican president was 223 mil lions for Willkie Both Men Women In the following table the poll indicates Dewey is leading Tru man in metropolitan districts around cities of over 50000 Both men and women favor Dewey the women by a greater margin Tru mans greatest popularity is in the younger age group and in the low er income levels As in 1944
