Gop chances in off year elections fade Semi final poll shows Congress to remain democratic by George Gallup director american Institute of Public opinion. See Chart on Page 7 Princeton n. J., oct. 24.�? latest reports from interviewers for the Institute across the nation indicate that Republican chances to win control of the House of representatives in november Are fast fading. The trend toward the gop in the congressional voting came to a halt Early in october and today the democrats seem to be gathering strength. Despite probable Republican victories in gubernatorial races in Many of the largest states the election nationally will indicate no great political upheaval no Overall shift in the tides of political sentiment from coast to coast. Whereas six weeks to a month ago it looked possible for the republicans if the trend at that time had continued to pick up enough additional seats to win control of the House today it appears that the party line up in Congress will not be radically different from what it has been since 1938. The democrats will not Only keep control of the House judging by present indications but will continue to have a substantial majority of the seats. The republicans May pick up a few additional seats indeed there May be sizable gop gains in some areas in the East and Middle West. But these will be partially offset by democratic gains in the far West. 52 per cent for democrats.
