By GEOKGE GALLUP Director, American Institute _0f, Public .Opinion PBINCETON, N/J., Oct. 31.--The outcome of the election Nov. 7 will depend as niuch upon'those who do, not vote as upon those who do. 'Elections_ T in the United Stages are unique in this respect. No other major democracy has so low a voting rate as'"we do. The "best estimate, of the number of people who -"·"·-' vote next month "3s 39,500,000. This suits would-not be greatly different Is only 1 two-fifth of the estimated adult population 0^97^0,000, The other three-fifths will stay liome. Translating tSese ratios Into millions, the i coming election looks like this: Total voting 39,500,000 41% Not voting. 57,500,000 59 Potential voting pop. "(est) . 97,000,000 100% Not all adults can participate in flections, because of poll -tax, restrictions on length of residence la a district,' illness and .other factors. But the adult population figures are used here as a' base to .ndicate the: potential vote In the United States. Next month's low .turnout, will not be anything unusual In American politics. In other years It has been just as low. Here, for instance, is what happened in the ,ast mid-term election, 1946: Voted fort Democratic: candidates ....15,481,000 Republican candidates ....18,421,000 Minor party candidates. ·499,000 TOTAL VOTING 34,401.000 NOT VOTING -- 57,233,000 Potential'.voting- pop, (est.) in 1946 91,634000 ·Iri presidential election years the ;urnout is much greater. But it has been well under 60 per cent of the adult population in the last two elections: In : .iact, in:.'1948 it was nly a little more than 50 per cent. By contrast the turnout in elec- ions in such countries as England, ''ranee and Italy averages around 85 per cent Effect Ot Nonvoting If those who stay at home on, election-'day: had the'same political iriews and party .leanings as those Who vote, then the high degree of nonvoting would have little or no effect on the outcome. Election re- Si.' Si! Old Pos Is Convivial Company Three recaptured prisoners from Mt.'Lemmon federal, prison camp are convinced ;that there's nothing like a good faithful dog- named "Old Pos," The three 1 .-Mexican nationals escaped: Saturday'night. Old Pos, the bloodhound of the prison camp, was put on their trail. He led'them over such rugged terrain that peace officers finally gave up the chase, but not Old Pos. e -continued - until Sunday morning, when, covered with burrs .and cactus, he, too, returned home. Sunday evening, when: the .escapees were recaptured" near Sabino canyon-road, they, were asked if they "knew a TDloodhound · had been put on their.trail..;' · - _ "Si," one replied. Old Pos had spentV.the night with them; whether 39,500,000 voted or 80,000,000 voted. But in-the'TTnited States the persons who lean toward the Democratic party do not, ordinarily get out and vote in the same' proportions in midterm , elections as those 1 who lean toward the" Republican party. Since tnere are many more people who consider themselves Democrats than there are who consider themselves Republicans, a large turnout is generally a factor favorable to the Democrats. , G.OP Takes Comfort Indeed, Republicans are taking comfort in the fact that midterm elections such as the one next month always produce" a turnout substantially lower than that in presidential years._^ The' : nonvoter presents, a particular proUem to any organizatiop conducting pre-election, surveys of political qpinion. ,, The problem is how to tell in advance which individuals questioned in..; a: ^ross-section. . survey will actually vote'on election day and wfiieh will not, or :n other words, how,..to identify- correctly the 39,500;000 who will vote out of the 97,000,000-adults.- Elaborate questioning techniques are being developed by, : the institute to help/ determine which voters 'will, and .'which will not, vote.' These techniques^ are, however, riot infallible, arfd for that reason the turnouViactor must always be considered one of the sources of possible error inflection polling. · . ' · ; · . ' The Undecided Voter At .this 'r.stage,. in-, the congres- sional campaign a substantial number o f f persons who', plan'to vote -assumed that they will vote about much more than for tile GOP., are undecided, as to their choice o f , ' ' - candidate. . ' , As reported,' "the situation- In early October was as follows:-. Favor Democratic candidates . _ _ 43% Favor "Republican ' candidates » 42 Undecided 15 100% The size and importance of this undecided group is even more evv dent when, the percentages are translated into millions of votes Assuming that the percentages apply to those 39,500,000 who are expected to vote this fall, -. some 33,600,000 have a definite idea what party they will 'vote for while some 5,900,000 are still sit- ting.on the fence, ' Analysis Varies There are a number of ways of analyzing the undecided vote. It can be assumed that they will vote in the same way as those who ex- press a preference. Or, It can be the same way this time as they" did in the last election. An analysis of, the 15 per cent still undecided,'in the -latest surveys by the institute shows a substantial leaning toward the Democratic party. ' In. other words, the undecided of votes for 'Che Democratic party, As the campaign enters the home stretch, the proportion, 'of unde- cldeds usually diminishes. The, institute is employing senes of questions to a special determine how the undecided are "leaning" at present, and this technique will be continued, up to within a few. group today represents a potential days of the election.
