Broken Glass and Tacks on Nixon's Path

October 1955
New Republic;10/17/55, Vol. 133 Issue 16, p3
The article focuses on the political conditions in the United States. Around the Washington Press Club the opinion is overwhelming that the Republican Party will nominate the 42- year-old Richard Nixon for President at the San Francisco Cow Palace next August. These educated opinions (not an expression of correspondents' preference) are more one-sided in number than the findings of the first Gallup Poll taken after the President was stricken, in which Republican voters were asked what candidate they would vote for today if Eisenhower and Chief Justice Earl Warren were out of the running.
