Now the polls s&y his popularity hsw shp- eci away down. It is nnt the lime his pop ularity slipped. It hit a. low hack in 1946 elections when the Republicans won control of Consrcfs for the first time since 103?. Truman Surged Bark He surged back, when almost no one thought he had a chance, to a stunning victory in the presidential f elections of 1948 re may come out of his present slump.
