votes assured 19 of Demos like Nixon By KENNETH FINK Princeton Research Service PRINCETON N J What Is happening on the political party front at the present time Are more Republicans swinging to Kennedy than Democrats to Nixon or vice versa In both 1952 and 1956 higher proportions of Democrats voted for President Eisenhower than Republicans for Gov Stevenson This was one of the big reasons why Ike was able to post two impressive victories AND BECAUSE the opposite happened in 1958 Democratic candidates for Congress were able to chalk up victories and win control oHhe House of Rep resentatives Results of a survey completed within the past 10 days throws light on what is happening on the swinging front today Highlight of these findings is that for every Republican who today says he would vote for Kennedy there are three Demo crats who say they would vote for Nixon At the same time Vice Pres ident Nixon has a majority although a very bare one of the independents in his camp REGISTERED VOTERS in all walks of life were asked the fol lowing question Suppose the presidential election was being held today Which candidate would you like to see win the Demo cratic candidate John F Ken nedy or the Republican candi date Richard M Nixon Heres what a cross section of registered Republicans told the interviewers REPUBLICANS 30 of vote Nixon 94 Kennedy 6 And heres the way rank and file registered Democrats an swered the same question DEMOCRATS 43 of vote Nixon Ktniwdy Bl Important too is that at the present time somewhat more Independents say they would vote for Nixon than for Ken nedy INDEPENDENTS 27 vott Nixon 52 Ktmwriy 47 FROM OUR WIRE SERVICES FORT DODGE Fort Dodge erupted with atumultuous re ception for Democratic presi dential nominee John F Ken nedy Thursday and

them I dont preach the doc trine of fear I preach the doc trine of vitality and force AT THE FORT Dodge air port Kennedy cut his scheduled halfhour speech in half and told another goodsized crowd to take a look at the record of the Republican party in the last eight years before they go to the polls He said have a se rious decision to make He has had eight years to study the fruits of his judgment since he voted for the Eisen hower policies in 1952 Kennedy said He said The only reason that farmers supported the Re publicans then was that they had been promised 100 per cent parity On We
