ABSTRACT
The article presents information on presidential campaign in the U.S. It states that on his March 22 trip through California, presidential candidate of the Democratic Party Estes Kefauver found no reason to change in any way his appeal. A public opinion poll showed that while another presidential candidate of the Democratic Party Adlai Stevenson was still favored in Los Angeles, Kefauver's strength had tripled. The conservative Los Angeles press unanimously conceded Kefauver victory in the June primary. According to a poll by the Los Angeles firm of Walter H. Eaton & Associates, the Tennessean's drawing power among the city's Democratic voters had jumped from 7 percent February 1 to 22 percent as of the last week of March. Stevenson's rose from 49 percent to 52 percent in the same period.
