Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - September 29, 1960, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper idittd for tht CITY GLOBEGAZETTE The VOL 91 Auociata Prtit ind United InternitioBi Full Wires newspaper that makes all North lowans MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 2 I960 neighbors 7c Paper Conitits of Four SecUoafSecfion No 301 Situation worse Cuba Yanks Kennedy back in the lead Poll shows close race By KENNETH FINK Princtton Research Servict PRINCETON N J If the presidential election was held today between Sen John F Kennedy and Vice President Richard M Nixon the results would be very very close judg ing from the findings of a sur vey completed within the past 10 days Democratic nominee Kennedy now holds a very thin lead over GOP nominee Nixon This is the way interviewers see it at this time Kennedy 503 Nixon 493 Undecided 04 It must always be kept in mind that public opinion sam plings are normally subject to a margin of deviation of approx imately four per cent when the findings are at or very near the 50 per cent mark the1 way they are today WHAT ALSO MUST be under stood is that todays findings re flect only current opinion and that in a race as tight as this years changes will undoubted ly take place between now and Nov 8 For this reason reporters will be in the field sounding senti ment right up to the Saturday night before election day and the latest survey findings will be reported in this newspaper as fast as they are tabulated Three weeks ago findings on a similar question showed the following Nixon 508 per cent Kennedy 487 per cent Undecided 05 per cent Thus since early in the month sentiment for Kennedy has inched forward 16 per cent that for Nixon has dipped 15 per cent and the undecided has dropped a tiny onetenth of one per cent THESE CHANGES over the past 21 days are slight and may be due as much to sample varia t i o n as to actual changes in sentiment Todays state of opinion in the presidential race would seem to indicate that neither man can be counted as ahead or behind in all probability the tight race predicted all along is still like ly to happen Actually it means that the do ings and sayings of Nixon and Kennedy over the next few days and weeks will decide who goes to the White House next Jan uary Trained thoroughly experi enced reporters put the question to people in all walks of life in key areas whose past voting be havior has been carefully stud ied and weighted in relation to the nations vote It is as a re sult of these methods that Princeton Research Service has never been wrong on a presiden tial forecast either on a national or state level since it began op erations on April 1 1947 TODAYS STUDY was eon ducted by reporters using the WolfPack Anonymity interview ing technique that guarantees the person questioned that his name and address cannot pos sibly be learned Under this technique reporters work under on the spot supervision Each reporter and supervisor is carefully trained in all phases of occupations and industries as well as in every facet of t h e meaning and importance of each background question asked PRS believes the WolfPack Anonymity on the spot super vision technique is the greatest single breakthrough in the pub lic opinion field since polling be gan It is far more costly than merely telling a reporter to question someone in every sixth homo in a block or some similar direction and requires far more expcrienct and training than any other kind of public opinion research WASHINGTON Ameri can nationals are urged to leave Cuba now the State Department said Thursday Teams from the US Embassy in Havana have visited US residents privately to counsel them to ship their dependents out immediately and to leave themselves unless vital business requires them to stay However informed sources said the recommendation did not apply to the US fam ilies living on the great US naval base at Guantanamo in eastern Oriente province PRESS OFFICER Francis W Tully said
