Page 8 Presidential Outlook (EDITOR'S NOTE:.This is another in a series of dispatches on the political situation around the country.) Outlook '64 —, The Mountain States United Press International SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (UPI) —President Johnson is running strong in the Mountain states and may become the first Democratic candidate in 16 years to capture a majority of the area's 24 electoral votes. - Democratic leaders in Utah and Nevada believe the President leads Sen. Barry Goldwater, the Republican nominee, by wide margins in their .states. The race in Colorado, Wyoming and Montana is close, while intra-party feuding appears to be cutting into Goldwater's strength in Idaho. However, Goldwater's popularity in the six states should not be discounted. In his successful drive for the presidential nomination, he won 73 of a possible 76- delegates votes from these states at the national convention. The controversy over control of tactical nuclear weapons ap- . pears to be costing Goldwater support. It is felt the Arizona senator would be running much stronger if the issue was not in the campaign. Reason For Rift The Idaho rift is partially attributed to the ouster of National Committeeman Harry Markham .from the executive committee of the GOP National Committee. Alarkham, a moderate and close political ally of Gov. Robert E. Smylie, was replaced by Mrs. Gwen Barnett, Idaho national committeewoman and an early backer of ' Goldwater in his drive for the nomination. . Smylie calls Markham's removal a mistake and says it will hurt Goldwater's chances of winning the state's four electoral votes. j In Utah, one poll shows Johnson holding a 2-1 lead over Goldwater in a state which rolled up big majorities for Richard M. Nixon and D wight D. Eisenhower in the past three elections. Carry Governorship A ' lopsided victory for the President in Utah probably Moss, a liberal Democrat and strong administration supporter, into a second. term over GOP challenger Ernest L. Wilkinson. Democrat Calvin L. Rampton, a Salt Lake "City attorney, is favored to end a 16-year GOP grip on the governorship. Nevada was one of only four; states in the West that wound | up in President, John F. Ken- 1 nedy's column ill I960. Johr.son' is a heavy favorite to outpoll Goldwater this'' time. Democrats hold a registration superiority of about 2-1, including! a -4-1 lead in. populous Clark • County. In a key Nevada Senate race, incumbent Democrat Howard Cannon is facing strong opposition from Lt. Gov. Paul Laxalt, an early Goldwater supporter and the only GOP statewide office holder. Cannon has accused his op­ ponent of trying to disassociate himself , from Goldwater because the Arizona senator is trailing in the polls. Laxalt admits he is running an' "independent" campaign but says he remains "staunchly" in Goldwater's corner. > Both Claim Lead Both Republicans and Democrats claim to be ahead in Colorado. The GOP maintains that the tide that carried Nixon to a landslide win over the late President Kennedy four years ago and routed Democrats from nearly all state offices and control of the legislature in 1962 is again evident. Gov. John Love . supported Pennsylvania Gov. William Scranton in his losing bid for the GOP presidential nomination. The split between the conservative and moderate elements appears to have been healed, at least superficially. Montana is a big , question mark as _ the campaign moves into its crucial weeks. The Goldwater - Johnson , race is rated very close. Political analysts say the one."sure.bet' in the state is that Senate Majority. Leader Mike Mansfield will be re-elected. Another important race is the gubernatorial battle between incumbent Tom Babcock, a Goldwater Republican,- and Democrat Roland Renne. Babcock is given a slight edge. In Wyoming, the GOP is making a strong bid to unseat Sen. Gale McGee, a liberal Democrat, and win the state's three electoral votes for Goldwater. Mc'Gee is locked in a close battle with former GOP state chairman John Wold. Goldwater' is given a razor- thin edge over Johnson in Wyoming by many observers. Party leaders on both sides have urged their candidates to campaign in the state if they expect to claim its electoral votes in November.
