Now That 1954 Is Here

Key Jr., V. O.
November 1953
New Republic;11/23/53, Vol. 129 Issue 17, p12
This article focuses on elections in Presidential years and off years in the United States. Republicans demonstrated in the years preceding 1952 that victories in state campaigns could be ground-gaining skirmishes in the battle to control the nation as well as advantageous for the control of state policy. The chart indicates that, at least broadly, trends in party strength in state and Presidential voting move in the same direction. it also indicates that in the 1930's and 40's Democratic candidates for Governor fared less well than did the Presidential candidate. The record for Presidential years and for off-years states electing governors for two-year terms appears for the period 1932-1950.
