Bomb leads GOP Choices
By the nature of American poli
tics, President Roosevelt is the out
standing favorite choice for re
nomination. In the Republican
ranks, Borah of Idaho continues to
lead the field, a little better than
2 to 1 over Landon of Kansas in
second place. Knox of Illinois
runs a close third with Hoover
fourth. The break-down of Re
publican choices furnishes some
mighty interesting figures.
Even at this early stage of the
poll, the tabulation of state by state
returns and the break-down of the
voting for the various presidential
choices furnish speculative grounds
for voters everywhere. They show
them the political trends through
out the country, and months ahead
of the national conventions.
That was the big idea behind
this nation-wide "Next President"
poll, which The Franklin Press and
The Highlands Maconian, with 2,
000 other newspapers, launched
