PAGE SIXTEEN 1 BLYTHEV1LLB (AHK.) COURIER NEWg Early Gallup Poll Shows Power For Eisenhower in Race for GOP Presidential Nomination By I/SUE O. WIIJ5ON United Preu Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Jan. 22, IU.P.) —Dr. George Gallup's poll" are dealing sledgehammer blows to the pre-conventlon Republican presidential cahdidicy ot Ben. Robert A. Taft ot Ohio. Taft consistently chowg in' poll report* as the Republican president Truman most surely could lick next November. The same statistics ar« boosting the stock of General ike an a man Mr. Truman could not defeat * — Oov. Thomas K Dc\vey of New where, perhaps to Sen. Arthur H. Vandcnberg, R., Mich., or Speaker York shows up well in the poll reports, but trails Eisenhower in popular support which Is not likely to please the governor's backers. Tuft Is hard hit by poll reports because the greatest obstacle to his nomination for president appears to be doubt that lie would be an effective campaigner. A statement frequently heard Is tlitit Tnft woul:l make a good president but would knock himself out in his campaign. Practical politicians challenge the value ot the polls, especially if the figures oppose the practical politician's Idea of what is what. The consensus here, despite the polls, is that Tatt will come to thu Republican national convention next June urilli a large collection ot delegates. He may not have so many as Dewey but he will have a lot.* Those two are expected to lead on the first ballot. It was that way In 1!MO. Dcwcy was first. Taft a good second and Wendell L. Willkie far buck on the first ballot that year. Dcwey's strength faded fast after one ballot. Tatt gained steadily for a while but was overtaken by Willkic who kidnapped the nomination to the astonishment of politicians who thought they were running (he national convention. General Ike Is the potential kidnapper this year. The Gallup polls are making it steadily more difficult for him to make I lie definite statement which would take him out of the contest now and forever. Many -of the political regulars regard Eisenhower as an <* adequate ln**lll*«ne*." Th« lint reaoUlU to becoming any kind of a rMitn, he >ald, U a deep feetlnr of res|x>nslbfllty.
