Write-In Results Poor Index to Popularity Senator Taffs lopsided victory in the Illinois primary was the exported. Tie had the full support of the potent C.OI' organization, and very little formal opposition. General Eisenhower was not an official entry, but he figured in the contest as a write-in candidate. Less than complete returns showed him edging toward the 1-10,000 vole mark. Naturally enough, the Taft camp is pointing to this showing ns ••[jitifully small'' in comparison to the senator's total, lint it time to strip away fanciful Inlk ami face a few fundamental.'- about this write-in business. Because of the Minnesota and Xe- vl~ _ , ^tt»». braska write-in results, the rather giddy notion has got about that a write- in candidate is virtually on an equal footing with a formal candidate whose name is on the ballot. In other words, a lot of people are Assuming that a fair test has been had when a write-in choice has been matched against a formal entry. This is emphatically not the case, as the Taft people themselves would be the first to point out if, in any instance, Eisenhower were on the ballot anil the senator merely a write-in candidate. It is axiomatic in politics that the write-in chore is a difficult one for the voter to perform, and that any such result ral'lecls only a fair percentage of the support a write-in choice might get if he were on the ballot. In the Illinois primary, Eisenhower's showing, by any reasonable comparison, was a good one. 11 ought to be remembered I hat the highest write-in total ever hung up for any man in If. S. history was I'Hi.OOO for a mayoralty candidate in New York city during the lOiiO's. There is nothing "pitifully small" about a total that approaches this record. Kurlhermore, unlike their counterparts in Minnesota and Nebraska, the Kisenhower leaders in Illinois did not officially sponsor the write-in. Local clubs pushed it, and Governor Lodge of Connecticut made a two-day slumping tour of the stale. Hut these things hardly amount to a full-scale effort. Under the law Eisenhower could have formally entered Illinois, since his written consent was not required. His Washington men chose not to enter him because they believed the situation unfavorable. They were thinking of the organization's heavy leaning toward Taft, and the prospect dial. Illinois, tend- more toward isolationism than many stales, would inevidibly he good Taft territory. Kvent seem to have borne out their fears. Yet those events did not constitute n "stinging defeat" for Ike, as ons reporter had it. Ilia write-in was highly respectable. But there are marked limits to the write-in technique, especially when the effort is only a modest one. Taft won a handsome victory in Illinois. It reaffirms Hie fact that the 1.9;")^ race is a real contest. But no political realist regards the result as embarrassing to his chief opponent.
