With both conventions over, with Father Charles Coughlin out in the open for Representative William Lemke and his Union Party, and with Al Sinifii off for a walk, a swift, rust-hand survey of the New England .states, New York. New Jersey, and eastern Pennsylvania merits the following rather broad nnd general conclusions: 1. 'Hie campaign will be fought on straight New Deal and anti- New Deal lines—with clearly cut and extremely bitter class prejudices definitely injected into the struggle. 't. At this end-ol-Jimc point in the campaign, it appears that Lan<ton unquestionably will carry Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont, with Rhode Island apparently on his list. Belli Massachusetts and Connecticut are debatable states. In the former, at Ihe moment. Roosevelt seems to have a slight edge, wliile in the latter the odds arc even. , 3. Landon apparently is gaining '•strength iii New York stats, outside or New York City, but the plurality he Jikely .will roll up there will, it'appears probable, be swept aside jiy 1 a rstilL larger Roosevelt iilurality-irttlxite'big •city fc&fr'! 4. New Jersey is extremely doubtful, but ; at this time Ro; veil is rcgniriin; ground. 5. 'Eastern Pennsylvania and Philadelphia may for the first time in their history go Dsmocratic in a national election. Apparently Roosevelt has slightly better than an even chance of carrying the City of Brotherly Love. Many think lie can carry the state. S. LLanclon has all the earmarks of a popular candidate, but in the cast his dry background will cost him some votes. 7. The third parly will take more votes away' from Roosevelt t'iian from London, but it is doubtful if it. will have any considerable effect in the cast.
